Can't say it was a "few isolated morons" MB. Thats more like nowadays. Beck then it was endemic. The swing low song did come from the Twickenham crowd in '88 towards a black player, so I'm.not sure English RL was any better than English RU regards race relations.

The more obvious example of racism in the RU hierarchy was in South Africa. The 'white mans game' was the sporting wing of apartheid, the consequences of which are still in effect today (regardless of Mandela's incredible gesture). Most black South Africans couldn't care less about Rugby.

Endemic among a few isolated morons. British RL had a black captain in 72.

Anyone going to challenge these guys over their proposed project ??


No. I doubt it will even be worth a page in the RL press let alone national press.

Is there really any need this sort of comment?

I'd have thought there might be a bit of respect for a minority fighting for the recognition they deserve in the face of persecution from those who actively sought to destroy their culture and way of life on a rugby league forum of all places.


I'm Welsh and wish to claim the right to Middle Earth from NZ and back in the country from which many of the ideas originated. 

Oh and there wasn't much love for RL in Wales, the land of my fathers rather liked the English establishment.game.

Wouldn't argue with that, he came back to RU a very good player.


Fond memories of sitting in a pub in Cardiff watching him plays for the Lions in SA.....,not so fond memories of watching him destroy England's grand slam hopes at Wembley.

Combining with Quinnell to pull of a signature RL and St.Helens attacking move.

I have little regard for those who denigrate my sport. Same Wordsworth quote from me too.

I'm with you all professional RU players should be banned.
