Winter Quiz 2009

8 posts in this topic

Here are just a few questions to make you think. Those of a certain age will find them reflective.

1 Where are the ashes of the late referee Eric Clay buried?

2 Gary Jordan played for us in the 60's on two spells. Who did he play for in between these two periods?

3 Who was the last member of the Royal family to present the Challenge cup at Wembley?

4 Who presented the Challenge Cup to John Newlove in 1973?

5 Who was chairman of Featherstone Rovers for our first Challenge cup victory?

6 Which club did Jim Hopwood captain in the 60s?

7 Which team played at Mc Claren Field?

8 During the 63-64 season, Castleford lost a semi final replay at which ground, what was the score, who did they play and what was the approximate attendance?

9 Who was captain of Hull KR when they won the Championship in 1979?

10 And finally who inducted the last 3 players into the Hall of fame.

There are no prizes for this but will keep the grey cells buzzing. Post your answers on the thread and see how long it takes

PS not forgotten about the Spread and Save, my Frank Spencer antics are taking longer to heal than i thought. Another sign of the ageing process.

I take it then that either the questions are too hard or we have no old fans left at the Rovers. B)

Could be both, but for me it's just too damn dull to bother with.
