Pretty sure Neil Gray was English - we got him from Doncaster in the early Elland Road days. I think after a couple of seasons for us he emigrated to New Zealand, which is probably where the confusion lays.

Sorry for the late reply to you and Penola, Looks like i am wrong on both counts. Yes his name is Neil, and he emigrated to New Zealand. Still he was a very good player.

Yes Iggy I was English,lived in Normanton,Paul Daly brought me to Hunslet with Terry Hudson we were both from Fev Rovers and yes I migrated to New Zealand in Dec 1986

Hey wonky Paul Charlton was your greatest full bk imo but that sione kid was pretty good too!

charlton was before my time mate. sione was probably on par with carter now buy mully was in a class of his own, 1hand takes in awful weather, greatest try ever against haven and as good in defence as he was in attack

Carters good but Sione was something else , totally freakish talent . Big , tall , rangy and unbelievable running ability . An X factor I've rarely seen in a town player , you just can't coach that !!!

That's him . He went to have a trial at Wigan , but yes he had that religious quirk in playing terms which would have held him back . He was a standout in the NZ comp , winning grand finals , and played for New Zealand A , scoring a hat trick in a game for them . Ged Stokes was their coach and Ged became town coach and brought him over . He could scythe through a whole defence to score with wizardry of footwork and acceleration !!
