Watching these Bevan French tries tonight with his sublime footwork has got me thinking about some of the greatest side steppers we've ever had.

So, who's your top three?

Mine from memory:

John Ferguson
Jason Robinson
Bevan French

Notable mentions Amos Roberts, Sam Tomkins and Dean Bell.

They would be my 3
I would describe them also having the best and quickest footwork

1st game French played a good friend of mine text me and said "Who does he mend you of"?

I replied "Chicka", and that's who he meant.

French is the best I've seen having watched Wigan since 01. It's like playing a game on 'easy' mode watching him go round Super League players.

Most idiotic post ever goes to Grimmy..... The way to restart should be an arm wrestle between a designated player from each side.

I’d have Henry Paul in there somewhere, Jason Robinson is the best I’ve ever seen though.

Probably the best I've seen was Chris Hesketh. I know, "Bloody old bugger" :D

He could step of either foot, and Wigan let him go to Salford!!!

Henry Paul was the first who came to my mind. His step was hard to read and he also confused defenders when he’d throw that full spin in. I loved watching him play, even the warm ups with him and Inga throwing 30 yard one handed Passes to each other were great.
