Six Tackles: Best Scotland internationals in Super League era

We have taken a look at the six best Scotland internationals in the Super League era and there have been some brilliant players for the Bravehearts.

We have included players who have also played for Great Britain but we have excluded those who have played for other countries.

Peter Wallace

The 32-year-old is, arguably, the best ever player to pull on the Scotland shirt. He has made over 230 appearances in the NRL for Penrith Panthers and Brisbane Broncos, scoring 32 tries. He played four games in the 2013 World Cup and is still playing for Penrith.

Ian Henderson

The 34-year-old enjoyed an illustrious career at club level. Henderson won the 2005 Super League Grand Final with Bradford Bulls and won the World Club Challenge the following season. He was part of the 2008 and 2013 World Cups, making eight appearances in total.

Lachlan Coote

The 27-year-old is probably the most ‘box office’ type player who has ever played for the Bravehearts. Although he has never played in Super League, Coote has won the NRL Premiership and World Club Challenge with North Queensland Cowboys. The full-back played three games for Scotland in the 2016 Four Nations but was ruled out of the 2017 World Cup due to injury.

Oliver Wilkes

The 37-year-old had a fine 20-year career and liked to move around at club level! He played for 13 clubs in total and earned 15 caps for Scotland, scoring two tries. Wilkes played in two World Cups for the Bravehearts and is one of the most underrated forwards of the Super League era.

Ben Fisher

The 37-year-old had a successful career in Super League with Hull Kingston Rovers, Catalans Dragons and London Broncos, making over 200 appearances in total. Fisher played for Scotland 15 times, scoring six tries. He was in their 2008 and 2013 World Cup squads.

Andrew Henderson

The 38-year-old played for eight clubs during his career, enjoying long spells at Barrow Raiders, Castleford Tigers and Sheffield Eagles. He also spent a year at Balmain Tigers. Henderson earned 22 caps for Scotland between 2003 and 2013. He was a great hooker.

Notable mentions to Luke Douglas, Kane Linnett, Scott Logan, Danny Addy and Joe Wardle who have also been excellent for Scotland. Danny Brough would have been in the list but he had previously played for England.
