Sam Burgess named in dual rugby codes Dream Team

5-Lote Tuqiri

‘Between 1999-02, Tuqiri’s size and strength on the wing played a huge factor for Brisbane as he went on to score 56 tries in 99 appearances for the Broncos.’

6-Henry Paul

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

‘After starting his career with St Helens, he went on to have steady spells with Widnes and Salford before moving to rugby union with Northampton Saints in 2006.’

8-Sam Burgess

‘Despite struggles to adapt in union and being thrusted into the international scene prematurely, it is still hard to ignore the natural talent and fearlessness this man possessed throughout his career.’

9-Craig Gower

‘The former playmaker is probably more renowned for his time with Penrith in rugby league where between 1996-07.’
