Somewhat confused. The above was posted just after I had some poor news on my diabetes. But I can't be the Colin Smith mentioned as the illness seems very bad. Must be another Colin. I wish him well.

sorry for the confusion yes Colin played loose forward in the late 60s early 70s what Colin lacked in size he undoubtedly made up for with his ball handling and vision we won the a team championship in 71 -72 season and i think we won 14 games on the trot that season beating hull K.R in the final i know Micky Gibbins son posts on here i wonder if there was a photo of the team in his dads testimonial programme

My very best wishes to both Colin and JamesColin both are very much in my mind and prayers.
To be a ROVER is a privilege not to be taken lightly, with fans like ours, we will always be honoured.
