Alf 'Ginger' Burnell

Recommended Posts

Legendary Hunslet RLFC scrum - half Ginger Burnell has passed away age 95.

He played for Yorkshire, England and Great Britain, also serving as a a Submariner during World War II.

Hunslet was his only club playing in over three hundred games before and after the war. He was also a gifted artist and once famously quoted, after being told by an armchair critic that he was no Leonardo da Vinci 'Happen not, but I was a sight better bloody scrum - half than he was'

RIP Ginger.

Sat next to him on a few occasions at sportsman's dinners for the Hunslet Warriors, a charming man with many a tale to tell. R.I.P Ginger.
