Rob Roberts is off to Dewsbury...how many clubs has he played for?....is it some sort of record??....are there actually two of him?

I make it :

Keighley
Hunslet
Hull
Huddersfield
Leigh
York
Halifax
Barrow
Oldham
Dewsbury

Impressive but he's still got some way to matching Damien Reid, who's played for :

Leeds
St.Helens
Hunslet
York
Rochdale
Keighley
Batley
Barrow
Halifax
Widnes
Salford
Gateshead
Castleford
Sheffield
What I'm looking for is someone who can contribute to what England has given to the world: culture, sophistication, genius. A little bit more than an 'ot dog, know what I mean?

saying Reid played for Salford is stretching it somewhat. He signed but forgot to mention a very important date he had, Salford sacked him before the season started.

Not that many actually, I make it :

Castleford
Kent Invicta
Mansfield Marksmen
Sheffield Eagles
Batley.

I'd also imagine that if Reid was signed and registered by Salford then he can be counted as an ex-Salford player.

Rob Roberts could, IMO, have been an absolute star at any club he wished, had he applied himself properly.

He played at Hull FC for a while and was a terrific ball handling prop who frquently bust the line and put, what supporting players we had at the time, through with decent try scoring opportunities.

From what I've heard though, he enjoyed the sauce a bit too much.

One of the stories from when he played alongside Paul King at Hull was that they'd been out on a bender together and were struggling back to West Hull when an argument ensued over which was the harder of the two.

Lo and behold, the next Hull home game saw both players sporting impressive shiners.

Reidy's done the whole of this year with us and he's been terrific. We've offered him terms for next year too.
He's got a bit of mongrel in him and he does put the sh*tters up opposing centres.
