It's on AOB mate but certainly deserves an airing on here.

Terrific player and genuinely all round nice bloke.

I feel that our own shouldn't be shunted off to AOB to be honest.

Couldn't agree more.

Used to go to Knowsley Road with my Grandad in the 70s and Geoff Pimblett was one of my favourite players. He also played in the only Challenge Cup final I've ever attended, back in 1972.

A great player, very sorry to hear the news.

One of the first players I ever knew the name of, a star in Saints teams that weren't always overflowing with them. RIP

You know you are getting on a bit when a player you saw as a kid in the 70's passes away in their 70's.

I remember as a kid watching Geoff Pimblett on the telly and at Cas and thinking he looks more like a local bank manager than the stereotypical RL player of the time.

A great servant to the game.

I posted it on the AOB thread; but yes, you're right, he deserves a thread of his own on here.
