Only vague memories of him, but by all accounts an awsome sight when sprinting at full pace, oh a tad on the tough side along with his brother Jim - God bless em both.

A very nice tribute from the Doyle on Blunderside tonight.

Bill Drake was one of my dad's heroes and often featured in the stories he told me about the mighty Hull FC pack of the fifties.

RIP to a Hull FC legend.

                Lee Radford rang me the other week....I knew Hull FC were a bit desperate but I had no idea it had got that bad.

I remember seeing the Drake bros when I was a kid. True legends of the game. a sad loss to rugby not just Hull.
