In Topic: Past player

I went to Gordon Street school at the same time as Colin Bates (his nickname was Blobber.) He played at stand off for the school and the only match I remember him  playing in the first team at Rovers was at stand off and he scored a try in a big win for Rovers. Vic Rawes went to South Featherstone school and was a winger. He received a very hefty signing on fee (£1000)

but never reached his potential. In the same South Fev school team at that time was Eric Broom who signed for Hull at 16.
