    How about a bigger tie up with Featherstone Lions?

    That is really good and very nostalgic. Having seen Walt and Alan both play it takes me back.

    I thought we were well covered at hooker. If it is him Is he versatile enough to cover other positions?

    If recruitment is over albeit of a temporary nature and Ugi and Walton not available, how do you see the line up for the Friendly games?

  9. Les Tonks R.I.P

    Checking my records I had forgotten that the three mentioned also played in the cup final loss to Warrington in 74. Shows how consistent Les was. RIP old boy and thanks for your efforts for Fev.

    I mentioned the pack and remember the other tower of strength in the front row was Malcom Dixon, with Harris at hooker and the last three down were Arnie Morgan, Jimmy Thompson, and Tommy Smales. Coincidentally Les was one of the few survivors when we played in the final in 1972-73, The front row being him, Bridges and Vince Farrar. The other two to come through from 1966/7 were Smith and Thompson. Great player who was very strong in his position when props had to assist hookers to the best of their ability.
  11. Les Tonks R.I.P

    Condolences to his family. I remember him well as a player. He was like a rock in the front row when hookers were hookers and he gave the hooker a big advantage in the scrums with his strength and expertise. Specialised great player who helped to make our pack of forwards fearsome at the time. R.I.P Les.
  12. Featherstone vs. Toronto on Good Friday

    Have been to Leeds on train recently and you can get to Knottingley or Pontefract from Leeds City station. Bus from there is easy. Have a look at Pontefract castle and you might visit the Travellers Hotel in Featherstone that was run by Tommy Smales and has connections with Robin Hood.

    'Fleeced' Perhaps the clubs are being sheepish about it. 'Intent' They may keeping it under cover.

    We have all made mistakes. The answer is to learn from them. If he does that then we can look forward to a dedicated player.

    Ridyard was asked about the quantity of half backs we had and he replied all could play by adapting to various team positions. I feel Briggs could have covered at centre and if Turner came in it gave us more options for the centre position by him releasing Misi. I feel they are as good as possible new centre signings. As for set positions they are not as certain as in past years. I mean you only have to look at our test team and Bateman a second row forward is playing centre.
