The Daddy

Rugby League in the UK has become insular and self absorbed

By craftily splicing in the fruity scenes into "This Sporting Life" you mean? By the way FWIW I reckon The Daddy's well argued OP has a lot to commend it. I bow to no one in ignorance of SL but the post Lewis regime does seem a bit "Back to the Future".

I learnt today from a very old Wakefield fan that the concrete terrace segments at Belle Vue (North Stand) are pieces of floating harbour used during WWII.  They are in fact hollow, something I've known for a while but had no idea why.

surely that part of the ground is older than that.

 

Concrete was used extensively in world war 1 well as ww2 for making barges, pontoons, even ships so my guess is that is where they might originate from if wht you say is true.

 

for them to be part of a floating sea going structure they would have to be made of steel reinforced concrete and would't have to be hollow.

Yes, that was my response too.  Apparently the North bank and the South bank were both made of ash which was piled high, probably with railway sleepers in place for the steps of the terraces.

 

You may be right about WWI and not WWII.  I can vouch for the fact that they're hollow, I've put my foot through a few of them over the years, and many of the ones that remain bare the scares of repairs/filling.
