Irish,

          Eric Batten played for Northern from 1943 until 1951 including playing in all three Cup Finals. 1947,48 and 49.He actually played over 200 games for the Northern .In those years Bradford had a stranglehold over Leeds winning almost at will against them. 

He then took over at Featherstone as Player Coach and they were right down the bottom of the League, but he took them to Wembley in 1952 where they lost to a top Workington team 18 - 10. But it was a major achievement to get them to the Final.

It falls short by about 24 and a half million, then. :kolobok_biggrin:

Talent is secondary to whether players are confident.

My father showed me this picture when I was a child and told me that rugby league players were the finest rugby players on earth.

We can certainly scrub up well when we put our mind to it without the pomposity of another sport!

As the story goes, the tackler was top-class and had stopped the ball carrier a number of times. The hurdle was his novel solution, when ''normal'' evasive efforts kept failing. It was, of course, a world first and as such, completely unexpected and so the tackler (employing his usual techniques) was utterly bamboozled.

Brilliant thread. Brilliant.

Kevin Ward!

James Graham after the semi-final made me involuntary cry for 12 minutes.

The Wigan players down the tunnel..

What a sport! What a bunch of people!
