Ball playing loose forward

31 posts in this topic

Phil Doyle was an excellent loose forward and was responsible for many of Trevor (tank) Walker's tries in his record breaking season for a prop forward

of 18 tries.

I'm surprised that BSJ hasn't joined this thread. Blind Side Johnny (Wolford) was also a skilled loose forward.

He's been away, with only limited internet access. ;)

It may surprise some to recall that the mighty Jeff Grayshon was a loose forward of renown for many a year before moving forward in the pack. A decent pair of hands had Jeff.

Some that were mentioned (Wolford even Stephenson) were stand-offs that had lost their pace, not proper loose forwards, of whom Les Holliday was the last that I recall.

Now someone start a thread on ball-handling props!

Paul Woods of Warrington - although he doesn't have as many to handle these days. Rumour has it his theme song for this year will be "remember you're a oneball". Peacocks probably as good as anybody.

James Graham gets/or used to get the ball out a lot. Morley has had his moments too.

Barrie McDermott used to fling it anywhere.

Lee Crooks was superb at getting the ball out.

Closer to home Joe Berry used to like getting the ball out with limited success.
