29 Hussain M’Barki

A mysterious signing in September 1981, when he played his first game under a pseudonym to avoid detection by the rugby union authorities, Hussain was the club’s first star who had not played for another club. He was also Morocco’s first professional rugby league player. A speedy and skilful winger, who also played full-back later in his career, he thrilled the Craven Cottage crowds with his tries and pace after joining the club from French rugby union. He left in 1984 to join Warrington, and subsequently played for Oldham and Hull before returning to live in London and rejoin Fulham in September 1988 until he retired in 1992. He then worked hard to build the sport in his native Morocco.

148+15 appearances, 74 tries, 265 points.
