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.

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.
