Yeah, he must have dyed it ginger for the first two or three years, he was a Fev, then eventually the natural peroxide grew through!

Scott Glassell had a few games for Rovers at HB under Hobbsy.

Steve Nash had a ginger tash.

And I bet Kainy would dye his hair orange for a quid dare!

If you took the population as a whole only about 1% of people carry the double recessive allele, which would give Red Hair. If you then consider that half backs (including sub HBs) only make up 1/7th (approx) of a team. Therefore the number of Red Heads that have historically played at Half Back for one team is only going to have a 1/7 th of one percent probability of all the players that have ever played for that team.

In other words let's say For every 1000 players that have or will have pllayed for Rovers,only 3 half backs should be ginger. We know however, that that number will be higher because of the geographical position of Featherstone, being in the North of England. 1% of red heads represents the total as a world population. Obviously in warmer/ tropical countries where the dominant allele prevails there are few if any ginger people.

Whereas, Scotland incredibly contributes 1/5 of all red haired people as a world population.

He doesn't dye it at all now Andrew, he doesn't have to, he just polishes his head now

In part of this thread we diverted away from half backs. In that case I can remember Ginger Anderson and Ginger Dixon. Both props. First names Joe and Malcolm.

Alan Agar, Tex Hudson & Dale Fennell, all within 10 years. Phil Butler wasn't far off being ginger too. Was Peter Banner blonde or ginger?
