Ray Price was a bit nuts and as hard as nails and the best Lock of his era.

Ray Price class at Wakefield played injured most of the season and never took a backwards step.

Tony Fisher: I can still visualise him packing down head first at 100 mph into the face of his opposite number. Wouldn't be allowed these days and he would be sent off every game.
He knocked seven bells out of the Aussies when Peter Fox brought him back for an international recall in 1978. I can also remember him at prop for Cas against Fev in the Yorks Cup Final of '77; Fev were reigning Champions and strong favourites, but the veteran Fisher bullied young Fev prop Townend to death, and became the dominant factor in a surprise Cas victory.

Len Casey


He runs a B&B in the Lake District now I believe. I'm sure no one would ever have any cause to criticise the service, but if they did...

Here's a Warrington pack that would literally give a beating to most. All are players I've seen in 47 years of watching the Wire.

 

Boyd.

Joe Price.

Tamati.

Rathbone.

Nicholas.

Nikau.

 

Bit disappointed that I couldn't fit Brendan Tuuta and Bruce McGuire in.

Joe Price yes. I have to admit to barely having seen him play as he was usually suspended: wasn't he banned for a year after breaking someone's jaw and was then sent off in his first game back?

Nice guy Brad is. Talk to him often at All Golds

another nice guy off the field, lunatic on it. The hits he used to put in for town were bone breakers, he used to like a punch up or 2 as well.

I can remember him playing in a Wardonia Cup game against Wigan, scoring what was the winning try, throwing the ball down and starting the most almighty brawl. He was, of course, sent off, and that was a friendly.

I don't remember that one. There's no such thing as a friendly between Wire and Wigan though is there? The game in Milwaukee springs to mind with Les Boyd and Hanley.

After my last post I googled Joe Price and found out his ban was 11 months reduced to 4 on appeal and it wasn't for a jaw break. However, he had fractured Ken Kelly's cheekbone in a game against Saints without being sent off.
