Excellent read this. I especially liked:

'I know that's a huge generalisation but it applies a lot to blokes from Yorkshire. They're very forthright and opinionated – quite often without any foundation or substance.'

I can confirm 30+ less sales for Scotland vs Italy at Workington, after this afternoons test purchase for the Tonga match, £7.50 is extremely reasonable, however a £2.50 'delivery' fee for a walk in purchase is beyond taking the mickey, good luck with that, it's cheaper on the telly.

Enjoyed that. Really nice seeing some of the coverage the game is getting at the moment with features like this.

Excellent read, even from his time at Bradford he was such an interesting chap. Does anyone know if it made it into print? Barring a couple of f-words it should have been. Nice to see a "new" writer as well, someone who has covered a widespread of sports it seems.

Good find.

That's one of the best RL interviews I've ever seen in the mainstream press.

Couldn't agree more.

Comes across as a tough, honest and fair bloke who'll put in as much as he demands - exactly as I have been told he is by a player he coached
