Table-toppers Wigan and Challenge Cup winners Warrington provide all but four players between them in the 2012 Stobart Super League Dream Team, which was announced at Old Trafford on Monday.
Warrington prop Chris Hill, who was playing in the Championship with part-timers Leigh 12 months ago, has capped a remarkable debut season by becoming one of six newcomers to the prestigious mythical team chosen by a panel of journalists.
The Wigan trio of Josh Charnley, who finished on top of the Super League tryscoring list with 31 touchdowns, stand-off Brett Finch and Gareth Hock make the line-up for the first time, along with Warrington centre Ryan Atkins.
The other newcomer is Catalan captain and prop Remi Casty, who becomes the first Frenchman to make the team since it was introduced in 1996.
Wigan full-back Sam Tomkins is one of four players making their third consecutive appearances, alongside his club captain Sean O'Loughlin, St Helens hooker James Roby and Warrington back-row forward Ben Westwood.
Team: S Tomkins (Wigan), J Charnley (Wigan), G Carmont (Wigan), R Atkins (Warrington); R Hall (Leeds), B Finch (Wigan), S Dureau (Catalan); C Hill (Warrington), J Roby (St Helens), R Casty (Catalan), B Westwood (Warrington), G Hock (Wigan), S O'Loughlin (Wigan).
