Who is the greatest international full-back of all time?

Who are the finest ever rugby league players in the history of International Rugby League? Everyone has their opinion and every opinion is valid. We have 112 years of international matches and 125 years of rugby league to consider so its a tough task but let's start at full-back and see how far we get.

We have asked rugby league "experts" from around the world to list their particular favourites to just start the discussion but really we want your thoughts, backed up with reasons why they are so important to you.

Here is our first list - discuss, change, add new suggestions who is your favourite full-back of all time?

1 Puig Aubert 🇫🇷 "Pipette" is widely regarded as the best French player ever. So good he has a statue.

2 Clive Churchill 🇦🇺 He has a medal named after him - 'He set the standard by which all the famous rugby league players of his era, and since, will be assessed,''

3 Graeme Langlands 🇦🇺 45 test caps and during the final of the 1972 World Cup played between Australia and Great Britain at the Stade de Gerland in Lyon, France, Langlands was involved in what many believe to be the "greatest try never scored".

4 Kris Radlinski 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 30 test caps for Great Britain and England - he excelled in the 2002 Challenge Cup Final winning the Lance Todd Trophy despite being in hospital all week prior to the game!

5 Billy Slater 🇦🇺The most recent player on the list but Billy was also the winner of the television game show Australia's Greatest Athlete in 2009 and 2010 - so who can argue?
