The fullback position has become one of the most important on any Rugby League team. Right now the game is blessed with a number of fullback who are great player on an all time scale.
These are the top ten fullbacks in the game today according to League Freak.
1. Greg Inglis
The best athlete in the game, one of the most versatile players in the game, one of the most skillful players in the game, he is simply the best player in the world in my opinion.
2. Billy Slater
An incredible athlete with explosive acceleration, he is the most dangerous player in the game when attacking the opposition line. I think he is a future immortal.
3. Jarryd Hayne
Another incredible athlete. When he is on form he can destroy the opposition. That is the drawback though, his form is up and down.
4. Brett Stewart
An outstanding player who has an incredible try scoring record. His injury problems really hurt him as far as being higher up this list goes.
5. Ben Barba
Last season was incredible. This season he’s come back to the pack. His off field issues are a worry, but he is a young player with a whole career ahead of him.
6. Michael Gordon
A few injury issues but he is a very good goal kicker, he isn’t a problem as far as off field issues go and he is a very strong ball runner from fullback.
7. Josh Dugan
There no questioning his talent at all. On pure talent, he would be at number three on this list. However with all of the off field issues, and the injury problems he has had throughout his career, I can’t put him any higher than this.
8. Reece Robinson
He is one of the cheaper players on the list, he is super consistent and you can depend on him to turn up and give you the same performance week in, week out.
9. Darius Boyd
His form over the last couple of season hasn’t been great. He has a lot of big game experience though.
10. Kevin Locke
Great speed and fantastic footwork, Locke has the ability to carve up the opposition when he is on song.
A great player but doesn’t quite make the list. Especially because of the blunders he makes in defense these days.
I really rate him as a player but the constant injuries…I just couldn’t put him on the list.
Injuries are starting to have a major effect, which is a real shame. He is one of my favorite players.
Terrible under the high ball and he doesn’t perform against quality opposition.
