It's centennial year for Rugby League in NZ and to celebrate we're running a competition to name the BEST EVER KIWIS XIII, BEST EVER CAPTAIN and the PLAYER OF THE CENTURY...


How this came to be... A panel of experts, namely Peter Kerridge, John Coffey and Bernie Wood (all historians) along with Graham Lowe, Allan McLaughlin and Richard Becht were all endorsed by NZRL to set about selecting their team. The panel were each asked to submit a max of 4 Kiwi's from 1907-2007 for each of the 13 positions plus a captain and player of the century. From 96 names, 58 remain as contenders... these 58 are below and the challenge for you, should you so accept is to name the 13 players as THE PANEL have chosen...

If you guess correctly, you're in to win a trip for two to the Centennial Test v Australia at the Sydney Cricket Ground in May next year... thats flights, accomodation and tickets for two!

Tune in to Brendan Telfer at 10.30 every Wednesday until November 28th when he'll be profiling the positions with the first discussion focusing on Fullbacks/Wings, taking place on Wednesday October 31st.

Below are the 58 names - simply enter your 13 plus Captain and Player of the Century in the box below...good luck!
