Who's the fastest in our current squad?

43 posts in this topic

Batley don't have a DR arrangement with Huddersfield, they have a "unique and innovative partnership agreement" which in simple terms means they can play at least 5 shuddersfield players in a supposedly meaningless boxing day run out against a local team........

Correct!!!

Correct!!!

 

Correct!!!

I assume now we are back to default mode, we've done with the fastest man thingy ? If we've not, then over fifty meters, I doubt many will catch Thackeray. Certainly a much quicker squad overall this year,

I have absolutely no idea what you are on about!

Jesus didn't realise I was trying to entertain the max bygraves record collectors club

I'll break it down for the you

You were been criticised for been on our forum... Which could be regarded as snoopin... Get it??

Dogging as your favourite pastime with piggy in Batley park.

And your a Batley fan... So your a dog

In popular music ( that's anything after Glenn Miller) ;)

There is a artist called snoop doggy dog

Which sounds very simular to the name I called you

Now do you get it???

I wonder if I'd had to break down a sketch about a dead parrot... Would it still be funny

Ahead of their time

Just like me ;) ;)

Heres the scenario, 17 players lined up under the posts at the bottom end of the ground, at the scoreboard end under the posts is a 4 pack of finest Melton Mowbray Pork Pies, the hooter sounds and in a flash 17 players are racing upfield, they all get to the other end within a whisker of each other only to find that GFDU got there 3 seconds earlier and is already scoffing on Pie No 4

:biggrin:  :biggrin:  - he'd be behind me though.That little fat bloke who played fullback for Wigan last night against Batley's feeder club must have been on the same diet.

Whatever "The Dog's" (didn't he used to be on American Idol) intentions were in his foray on to this forum, he at least succeeded in changing the subject.  Perhaps that's because he can't think of anyone other than John Etty who, good player though he was, couldn't really spoil walking.

So let's put this topic to bed by confirming that THE fastest player EVER on Dewsbury's books was called Geoff Yoward, who was a Powderhall sprinter.

Very nice guy as well.

If only Nigel Stephenson had been half as fast...

The original post was who is the fastest in our current squad and not the fastest ever!

Not so fast flattopper. I'd say that Greg Ashcroft, who was in the Welsh commonwealth games sprint squad if memory serves correct, would more than likely have been faster, and I'll bet Eddie Rombo would have run him close. Will say though, he was one of my all time favourites, because he was the first Dewsbury player I saw leave defences for dead. There were a number of powderhall lads playing about that time - I seem to recall a Cumbrian winger who I think was called Murray, and a lad called Eddie McDonagh, both beating Jeff in a sprint at wakey in the early seventies - mind finishing third was no mean feat.

I'm a Batley fan but would have to say Eddie Rombo was one of the fastest wingers I've seen.

I remember watching him play for Morley Rugby Union team for one season. He even managed to make that variety of Rugby exciting.

He was only there for one year but managed to achieve legendary status in that time. One of my all time favourite sporting memories was a game where Morley were losing by 2 points against Leeds with about 5 minutes to go (circa 96). The Leeds Fly Half kicked the ball from his own line. It landed just inside Morley's half. ER picked up the ball, with Scatcherd Lane expecting him to put up a bomb in typical RU fashion. Over the next few seconds, be instead jinked through the entire Leeds pack, outpaced the back line and then rounded the full back to go under the sticks to win the game. One of the best tries I've ever seen in any code of the game. A truly magical sight and something I will never forget.

Nick, if you think that's his best, you should been have at Scarborough for his two entirely different types of try, or the one at Hunslet.
