ellery hanley pulls off the best leg tackle ever on a widnes player too.
I saw that tape very recently - fantastic action. Offiah and Hanley at the peak of their powers, simply awesome. Garry Schofield was also one superb player, I think people forget his amazing talent because of the way he puts himself across nowadays.
What is also interesting in that video - 1988-89 season - is that GB played a home and away series with France in the February. These games were played at weekend and players were pulled from their club sides in order to play in these fixtures. Happy days indeed.
How good was Emosi Koloto? One of the best running second row forwards I have ever seen. The guy was unstoppable in that season - as were Widnes. The had one of the most entertaining sides ever in that period.
