Two Leeds Rhinos players and one each from Castleford Tigers and Wakefield Trinity have been named in this season’s Betfred Super League Dream Team.

Along with Handley - Super League’s top try scorer and top metre-maker - and Hurrell, St Helens loose-forward Morgan Knowles is backing up after featuring in the 2019 Dream Team.
Wigan second-row Liam Farrell, who is also on the Man of Steel shortlist, has been selected for the third time, after making the second-highest number of clean breaks and carries in the competition.
Saints prop Alex Walmsley makes his second appearance in Dream Team, five years after his debut.
