Sam Burgess named in dual rugby codes Dream Team

Sam Burgess heads a list of five English players selected in a dual codes Dream Team named by a popular English rugby league website.

The Love Rugby League list of the best players to play both rugby union and rugby league also features ex-All Blacks and Samoans.

Love Rugby League’s Dual Codes Dream XII:

1-Jonathan Davies

‘His creativity, speed, flair and goal kicking ability were more than enough to see him be successful in both codes.’


2-Jason Robinson

‘After moving to rugby union, he went on to further impress with Bath and Sale before scoring a try in England’s World Cup final victory over Australia in 2003.’


3-Israel Folau

‘When it comes to being able to make an impact in both codes, there has not been many who made the transition better than Folau.’


4-Shontayne Hape

‘During the early to mid-2000s, Hape formed one of the most fearsome partnerships in the game alongside Lesley Vainikolo at Bradford.’
