Percentage of RU converts in RL back in the day in The General Rugby League Forum Posted yesterday at 19:18 Very true. In Rochdale, Hornets own Graham Starkey, himself a RU convert, did much to promote League in his position as PE teacher at junior high/middle school level. But kids then went on the high school and came up against ex grammer school teachers who refused to recognise League. I loved playing league but as soon as I reached high school I was shunted to the wing because of my small size and never saw the ball in three years. Starkey was a wonderful teacher and a great bloke.
