Norm Provan and Mark Graham selected as best ever international rugby league second row forwards

Norm Provan, the legendary Australian forward who features alongside Arthur Summons on the NRL Trophy and Mark Graham the kiwi who was the first ever player to be selected to be a part of the NRL Hall of Fame, have been chosen as the best ever second row forwards to have played international rugby league.

The selection was made from an initial long-list which was narrowed down to four, including Gorden Tallis and Sonny Bill Williams. Social Media was divided with the Twitter community supporrting SBW and Tallis whilst the Facebook community were pretty much in favour of Graham and Provan. 

Mark Graham and Norm Provan have achieved selection based upon a combination of test careers, impact and recognition by peers, by national organisations and support from the fans - however many people could mount great arguments for several other players. That discussion will now move on to the best ever Lock/Loose Forwards.
