Teenager Penny makes Dream Team
Rugby League
Leeds and Saint Helens have dominated the 2007 Super League Dream Team, but there is also a place for Warrington's Kevin Penny in his debut season.

Leeds have four players, there are three from St Helens, and one each from Bradford, Wigan, Wakefield, Warrington, Catalans and Huddersfield.

Leeds' Jamie Peacock matches Keiron Cunningham's record of six appearances.

The Dream Team is voted for by a panel of journalists and Penny has impressed since his first match in June.

The 19-year-old's inclusion ahead of team-mate Henry Fa'afili, who finished as Super League's top try-scorer, is all the more remarkable as he only started playing the sport three years ago.

Injuries to Stuart Reardon and Martin Gleeson gave him a first-team debut at Leeds in the summer and he replied with two tries, finishing the season with 12 in as many games.

"It came as a bit of a shock but I'm delighted," he said when told of his inclusion.

"I wasn't expecting to get many starts this year.

"I came into the team when they were quite a few injuries but I was determined to make the most of my chance and do whatever it took to make sure I stayed in the team."


2007 Super League Dream Team:

Paul Wellens (St Helens), Kevin Penny (Warrington), Adam Mogg (Catalans), Jason Demetriou (Wakefield), Scott Donald (Leeds), Trent Barrett (Wigan), Rob Burrow (Leeds), Nick Fozzard (St Helens), James Roby (St Helens), Jamie Peacock (Leeds), Rhinos Gareth Ellis (Leeds), Glen Morrison (Bradford), Stephen Wild (Huddersfield).
