Publicity stunt?? Might get a few more on the gate?? This is Warren Jowitt that we're talking about. Hardly Ellery Hanley, is he?
He's being playing vets rugby union, but that's a million miles from semi pro ruby league. The club could use it for publicity, might get a few more on the gate. But the only risk is he takes out one of our players.
I can just envisage the excited conversations in the pubs of Barrow prior to the game; "Hey, Charlie! Some bloke who played for a few Super League clubs and was always injured is coming out of retirement to play for us today! Go get a taxi hailed right this minute! Wouldn't want to miss this one!".
