  1. So sad, Great clubman, RIP George
  2. Genius that was Eddie Bowman, superb hands and what a run from big Les
  3. Charlton Glastonbury Tuimavave Wright Drummond Burke Walker Pickering Mackenzie Bowman Edgar L Gorley Patty 14 Kerr 15 Kay 16 Armstrong 17 Jon Lomax
  4. Some real pace in that back line, not a bad pack either
  5. Cant remember personally, but I suspect not much latin taught in Workington in 1945 either
  6. Gets better every game, looks like he's been playing years
  7. Mick Matache would run him close
  8. Good luck Ryan, welcome on board.
  9. Happy memories as a kid sitting on the wall at halfway line and little dugouts at each corner long before speedway days
  10. Was most games to be fair
  11. Just had op apparently, awaiting specialist decision on recovery time
  12. Totally sensible especially given conditions, looked like Andrew Dawson had a slight pull yesterday looking at strapping he had when he came on for second spell, can put that down to heavy pitch and cold etc so CT absolutely spot on
  13. Its a stadium for the wider commuinty surely, thats why local authority should have a stakeholder interest, and landlord responsibilities also. Think the model is more common than you seem to think!
  14. Sound about right, remember being told about one local derby game where opposition forward had absolutely battered some of towns younger forwards, going down tunnel at hlf time Wane had a quiet word, surprisingly it was all quiet second half. Old school
  15. Was fairly beat up by time we saw him, not a bad one at his best but no Jimmy, not many are though
  16. Didnt know we had a game! Think you are on wrong site mate

    Away shirt

    Played in numerous colours in the early days before what we know as town blue and white. Included green, red and even tangerine with black shorts
  19. PLAYED BETTER, Wales Similar in class to us exept for Jamie aparently, not sure they compared scorelines?
  20. Yea another great pack, but not quite up with that 6 i feel, Eddie Bowman one of best middles i have ever seen (Jimmy up there but didnt have the handling ability Eddie had) Les Gorley probably best back rower (apart from Brian Edgar) i have ever watched, add in Patty and the rest, nearly all of that pack earned well deserved international honours
  21. Best pack we ever had i would say Bob, backs were not bad either, size and pace
