What a load of tosh this lot was. They could not win their down at dominoes never mind a rugby match. I'm glad Hull KR signed me when they did. I learned a lot off Roger Millward and Len Casey.

I played with these bunch of comics at the end of my career. I was the oldest in the team by eight years,and was still the best player by far.
