This pic is courtesy of Rochdale Hornets RLFC 1958 - 1964 Facebook page. It's the 1958 Challenge Cup tie between Hornets V Bradford Northern at Rochdales old ground the Athletic Grounds. What caught my attention was the size of the crowd.

Image may contain: one or more people, people playing sport, child and outdoor

Thanks Pj - a reminder of my age and the days of crowds of which we Hornets diehards can now only dream. I seem to recall we had a similar “full house” for a cup tie against a Barrow side full of ‘star’ players.  I was fortunate enough to be able to walk to the ground (over the Rochdale canal) - on too many times, it seemed a much longer walk home!

My pleasure sir. I did manage visit the Athletic Grounds when I was a teenager twice in 1979 (I've just looked it up in a book of Wigan records & stats!). The first time the game was called off due to the atrocious weather while we were in the cafe/bar (I think it was called the Hornets Nest?). The second time was for the rearranged game about a week later - which felt like it was even colder! Wigan won 6-2 (according to the book), but it was so cold I was just glad to get back on the coach! Good luck to the Hornets.

Careful with that walking on water, one day you will forget where the stepping stones are?

A photo of the 1908 All Golds playing England at Stamford Bridge. Eccles with the ball, who scored one of the two England tries, in their  6-18 defeat. (Posted earlier in the History Thread)

Got to love a car boot for bargains. Ray French's Top 100 Great RL Players for 50p. There's some crackers of photos in there. One of Des Drummond being chased by Frenchman Cyril Pons. Can't find the pic via google but is a corker.

I really liked Kevin Ward, one of the best imports to the Australian game of all time.

He looks like he is wearing one of those Sumo suits in that photo :-)

Talent is secondary to whether players are confident.
