The trouble is we have been very lucky at The Tigers to have had so many absolutely brilliant players who are also very likeable and approachable people too :smt023 that it is difficult to single out any one person. At the time I was a nipper standing on the terraces, Barry Evans was always my favourite. His 156 tries is damned good going by any standards!

Closely followed by (in no particular order):-
Dusty Hare, Dean Richards, Paul Dodge, Les Cusworth, Peter Wheeler, Johnno

Best player - Josh Kronfeld

Favourite player - toss up between Darren Garforth and Dean Richards.... I'll give it to Deano to show him support in his current plight

dating back donkey's years, full back Mick Gavins. had real attitude.

but in the professional era - what a difficult choice. Deano? Geordhan? Ben? but on reflection it would have to be Johnno. great player, great bloke and a great legacy from him.

Geordan Murphy and Lewis Moody equally. Geordie because he has those magical moments when you gasp at what he's doing and it comes off. Lewis because he literally bleeds for the club, throws himself into every tackle and is a Tiger to the core.
