I make it :

Keighley

Hunslet

Hull

Huddersfield

Leigh

York

Halifax

Barrow

Oldham

Dewsbury

Impressive but he's still got some way to matching Damien Reid, who's played for :

Leeds

St.Helens

Hunslet

York

Rochdale

Keighley

Batley

Barrow

Halifax

Widnes

Salford

Gateshead

Castleford

Sheffield

What I'm looking for is someone who can contribute to what England has given to the world: culture, sophistication, genius. A little bit more than an 'ot dog, know what I mean?

neil kellett laked with a few.

Not that many actually, I make it :

Castleford

Kent Invicta

Mansfield Marksmen

Sheffield Eagles

Batley.

I'd also imagine that if Reid was signed and registered by Salford then he can be counted as an ex-Salford player.

Rob Roberts could, IMO, have been an absolute star at any club he wished, had he applied himself properly.

He played at Hull FC for a while and was a terrific ball handling prop who frquently bust the line and put, what supporting players we had at the time, through with decent try scoring opportunities.

From what I've heard though, he enjoyed the sauce a bit too much.

One of the stories from when he played alongside Paul King at Hull was that they'd been out on a bender together and were struggling back to West Hull when an argument ensued over which was the harder of the two.

Lo and behold, the next Hull home game saw both players sporting impressive shiners.

I seem to remember the late Geoff Clarkson had a few, anybody remember how many?

....and Terry Clawson.

Sport, amongst other things, is a dream-world offering escape from harsh reality and the disturbing prospect of change.

Think he had a short spell at Fev towards the backend of his career when he was around forty.

Yep, you're right - and I missed out Oldham too, so that's 10 pro clubs as well as Wakefield RFU.

With duel registration there'll be many a player racking up double figures on club numbers over there career.

Look at Ainscough, Wigan, Widnes and Castleford this season, Bradford next and he's plenty of years left in the tank!
