rick, i understand where your coming from but he does have ability, still scoring for Keighley now and got 3 tries for sheffield against wigan in a cup tie not so long ago.I think the problem with wingers is they dont get any quality passes on that pitch.

Barnett was given 4 out of 10 recently for Keighley, the lowest of all the team!

Scott stopped playing for the Old Boys a few years ago , because of knee problems and took up Boxing , which is what he's still doing.....he had a op for a knee reconstruction about a week ago........

For me , our best winger was Ronnie Sulipa, the tall,strong and fast new Zealander who played at the dogtrack.

He scored two great tries at Headingly against Leeds in a game, which was played on a Boxing Day. Think it was a league game.

Also remember he played in a game opposite Des Drummond the Leigh/Great Britain winger, and knocked him all over the place,we beat Leigh that day Sulipa scoring again. Des Drummond was known as a hard man in Rugby League, but met his match in Sulipa.

The other winger for me has to be Richard Baker , not as big and powerfull as Sulipa , but fast, heart like a lion , tackle anyone far above his weight, never stopped working. he got a few tries off Manson's perfect chip over the top kicks.

I remember Suilipa. I think he was a New Zealand international and it was a real shame he only stayed with us for one season. I'd say the best wing combination would be him and Muscroft but Kingston, who like those two is from the Greyhound stadium days would run them pretty close.

There was a guy who was in the same mould as (Des Drummnd, Henderson Gill) at the Greyhound track , just remember his surname Francis i think.....

Rudi Francis rick, he was pants. I think we had Norman Francis as a kid, he then played for Leeds and Bramley, a right beast but sadly lacking in commitment.

And we had Richard Francis didn't we?

Francis Jarvis - not a winger though
