PJ Marsh has dominated voting to take the hooker’s spot in Vodafone Warriors’ People's Choice 20th Anniversary Team.

Despite making just 35 appearances for the club from 2002-2003, Marsh headed off seven other contenders by claiming 32 per cent of all votes with former Vodafone Warriors captain Monty Betham and current hooker Nathan Friend his nearest challengers.

Marsh’s arrival at Mount Smart Stadium in 2002 coincided with the club reaching the NRL grand final for the first time and also claiming the minor premiership for first and only time so far.

Of the eight contenders, Marsh played the fewest games for the club but made a huge impact before injury side-lined him midway through the 2003 season.

His selection at hooker follows the choice of his team-mate Brent Webb as the top fullback over the club’s first 20 years in existence.

The second rowers will be the next positions to be voted on.

The players shortlisted for hooker and fullback were:
