They are some of the most talented rugby league players to ever play our game. An Immortal in Beetson, the class of Thurston, the intimidation of Tallis, the sheer devastation of Inglis and the touch of Lyons.

This weekend the NRL celebrates Indigenous Round – a chance for us to look back at some of the sport’s greatest players and how these men have helped mould rugby league.

Welcome to our annual list of Top 100 Indigenous Rugby League players of all-time.

The big movers are Matt Bowen and Jack Wighton with Bowen climbing into the top 10.

Bevan French and Will Robinson drop out of the 100 while Bruce Olive and current Brisbane star David Fifita slide into the 100 for the first time.
