Not necessarily the best game, but a memorable one, for me, was at a packed Crown Flatt against a Wakefield side in their pomp in the days of the Fox/Skene centre pairing, perhaps a Yorkshire Cup Semi-Final, with a one-eyed referee who penalized Dewsbury if they so much as breathed too loudly. In spite of his best efforts, Dewsbury were holding on to a one-point lead until the ref gave a penalty to Trinity in front of the posts which Neil Fox duly slotted over.
As they reformed at the halfway line for the subsequent kick-off, Gwynn Davies did what every Dewsbury supporter in the crowd would have loved to do at that very moment, and caught the referee with a beautiful roundhouse, flush on the jaw.
Thus ended Davies' RL career, as he got a sine die suspension for that particular, but very understandable, indiscretion.
I also fully endorse those mentions of the championship play-off semi-final at the Wilderspool. Warrington had a fully-equipped refreshments stand operating on the Dewsbury 25 yard-line (in spite of the then-recent advent of decimalization that's what we still called it in those days) for virtually the entire second half, but the Dewsbury defence was truly impregnable. The Americans may talk about the Alamo, the Filipinos may talk about Corregidor, the British about Rorke's Drift, but this beat them all in terms of defensive tactics and effort. It was absolutely heart stopping, with so many apparently impossible last ditch tackles, that to single out any one would be an injustice to a hundred more.
Days like that make you forget the other 99% of the time when you come away from the ground muttering "never again"!
Anyway, as I monitor events from afar via the ether, I hope that the pre-season optimism is fully justified, starting with a victory over Fev tomorrow in the hurricane season you're currently enduring. It does seem that there is better reason for eager anticipation of the season's start than has been the case for a few years. I have to rely on you guys' best assessments so I'm hoping that you're right!
