Today, Saturday, 9th November, 2013, marks EXACTLY 50 years (Saturday 9th November 1963) since the 2nd Test match at Station Road between Great Britain and Australia which resulted in a convincing win for the touring side by a 50-12 scoreline which, not surprisingly, became known as the 'Swinton Massacre'.
There were three Lions on duty that day, Ken Gowers (1), John Stopford (5) and Ron Morgan (12).
And, well away from rugby league and sport in general, only 13 days later on Friday 22 November, US President John F. Kennedy was shot dead in Dallas, Texas.
It was one of those landmarks in 20th century history where people are asked 'where were you when'…?
I was at a mate's house in York Avenue, Swinton listening to records when it came on the telly.
So, for that dwindling band of fans out there who, like me, are old enough to remember, where were YOU when JFK was shot?
