Castleford Hawk

Greatest Hooker

38 posts in this topic

Close run thing for the centres. Irwin gets the nod whilst McHugh just loses out to Tate on my casting vote.

The team so far...

1 Kemble

2 Muscroft

3 Tate

4 Irwin

5. Plange

6. Mannson

7. The King

13 Wolford

Now for the hooker. James Lowes went on to international fame but was he a world beater with us. Murray Netzer may get a shout.

Richard Chapman, Jermaine Wray,Darren Robinson, Richard Pachniuk,Charlie Wabo,Roy Sampson, Terry Webb plenty to go at here. Im not right sure if James Lowes played more than a couple of games at hooker tbh.

James played more at loose or halfs for us, Patch who Ellery wanted to swap for King Keiron Cunningham. Although would have been Chappy if we got him earlier in his career.In time might be Liam Hood.

I 've dug my copy of Rugby League World out , October 2005 found in all good bookshops WHS, ect........the guy who put this Hunslet team together was Cliff Spracklen and not Harry Jepson , and it says he was brought up supporting both Hunslet and Bramley , and points out not Leeds.

A trustee of Hunslet Boys Club and says he's now a director of Bramley Buffaloes , (Oct 2005 to print).........

Our Choice............................................................Cliff's Choice

1 Kemble...............................................................1 Billy Langton

2 Muscroft..............................................................2 Alan Snowden

3Tate......................................................................3 Geoff Shelton

4 Irwin.....................................................................4 Alan Preece

5 Plange.................................................................5 John Griffiths

6 Mannson.............................................................6 Brian Gabbitas

7 KING....................................................................7 Graham KING

13 Wolford..............................................................13 Tony Dean

Graham King maybe but not as good as Webb. In my team, Webb would have to be No 9.
