Ken Roberts passes away

Recommended Posts

Us Swinton fans have just heard that Swinton, Halifax and Great Britain forward from '50s and '60s Ken Roberts has died yesterday (8 August). He was with the Lions and nearing his best when he crossed the Pennines to Thrum Hall where he hit his best form in the Halifax pack and went on the 1966 Australasian tour as a Fax player. Our loss was Fax's gain. RIP 'Big Ken'.

He also had a spell with Hornets towards the end of his career. Just as I was starting to watch Rugby League.
