  1. Ellery Hanley, the man, the legend. It was an absolute joy to watch him grace rugby pitches around the world.

  3. ... turns 60 in March and looks better than I did when I was 20! And he can pull off a dapper outfit better than Phil as well.

  4. It was good to see Ellery on Sky today. He is a legend who is one of the few RL players that is widely known beyond the sport.

  5. This is a man who played the hardest team sport there is for years and played it as well as anyone who's ever played the game. He also turned around a life that was not destined for good things. He was a triumph as a player and a man. But I've never seen a worse outfit than that pink jacket with the zipped shirt.

  7. I agree, I think certain individuals have now realized it was an error not giving TWP access to central funding. The entire saga has embarrassed the sport in a number of ways. Yes, it has been embarrassing for TWP and David Argyle but the league has also personally embarrassed itself which, given the TV contract is up for renewal, you can`t help but think they have done damage to SL as a brand the way they have handled TWP.

  8. You do not "take" to a player. You just sit back and appreciate his skills and movement on the park.

  11. I think he invested his money very wisely, property, so no need to work for Ellery.

  12. Gill was part of an epic event on tv when he scored a hat trick(?) against Leeds. John Atkinson, pretty usefull himself, suffered. Colin Welland did a little documentary I think.

  13. He played it just as hard as a youth.i were in 3 year above him when he played at our place. a clip from an old paper. happy birthday Ellery. (Parkside had won the Leeds boys rugby league trophy from 1970 - 1974. In 1975 we took that trophy from them, and we were in the skyrack news paper. That year we had Ellery Hanley who went on to be one of the best RL players of all time. We had Henderson Gill who went on to play along side Ellery for a few clubs and Great Britain. And there was also a lad from Hull called Carl Sanderson who went on to play for one of the Hull clubs. We had some good times at that school.)

  15. He can probably still play better than a few Super League players knocking around right now.

  17. Just finished watching Life on Mars and now onto Ashes to Ashes. Gene Hunt is one of the greatest TV characters of all time and he has the best lines

  18. Just hope that the WP make it back to SL.If it hadn't been for the rough deal they were handed things could have worked out fine.

  19. HI Clifford. Appearances for clubs continue through various name / location changes. What constitutes the continuation of the 'same' club is a debatable point (one I'm always happy to discuss! But perhaps for another thread ) In relation to HNs, that is up to an individual club to decide. I believe York for example have two sets of numbers - one covering all players back to 1901, one starting with the re-formed club in 2003 (though I'm not sure if they've published both/either/neither). I know that Blackpool Borough's numbers have been generated, and that if it were for C-19 they would have been published by now, but the event to launch these was unfortunately postponed, and I haven't heard what they plan to do. These only cover the BB era AFAIK. At the RKC we will be generating 'Club Numbers' (or Rep/Cap numbers for representative/international teams) that will be a dynamic, consistently calculated equivalent of HNs; there are a number of differences in the way that clubs have generated these, and as errors are spotted, and players added/removed these are dealt with differently too, but usually result in wrong numbers not being restated, which is entirely understandable. The Club Numbers will be continuous in so far as the club is considered a continuation of an earlier guise. HTH. Neil
