Paul Anderson's got to be in this line-up, surely?

I think I remember, back in his Bradford days, Karl Pryce filled in due to injuries at stand-off a couple of times, and I doubt you'd ever find a bigger halfback than that.

Steve McCurrie, when he returned from RU?

Paul Grayshon (sp). The son of the former Bradford, Fev and latterly Batley player Jeff. Paul was bloody enormous.

Eric Grothe was a big man for a winger. Maybe him and Big Les could fill the sumo wing spots.

Well if we're firing more than one each Tuigamala (spl). Was also going to say Paul Grayshon.

Olsen Fillipaina on the bench,started as a stand off, ended up at prop,his versatility would come in handy!

Niel Baynes for prop

...Or Paleasina? Mark Riddell would be starting prop! Dunno about those mentioning Tuigamala though.........he was only ever fat playing Union....once he lost his union puppy fat and got fit in league he was more a monster than a fatty!

I was at Post Office Road the day his dad levelled him and he had to go off.

Both were shaded by Tony Banham R.I.P. who was played on the wing at Doncaster for a time by I think Bill Kenney.

I once played against Tony Banham, just after he had spent some time "away", and he was playing amateur rugby to get match-fit. He must have had twelve stone in his legs.

I could hardly get my arms round them to tackle him.

So naturally I didn't bother. :happy:

Well, he only scored about six tries, so I wasn't the only one.
