Ian Bell at Hull 

I think Featherstone,Barrow and York also gave him an opportunity.

He was a bit special.


     No reserves,but resilience,persistence and determination are omnipotent.

Just remember him being a real prospect and then disappearing from the top flight , another would be joey Hayes and Simon Haughton . 

Ok, I thought you knew him.  

Ian was the most gifted natural centre I’ve seen.  Deceptively strong, a good step and good pace.  Like a few, he thought he’d made it, before he had.  Got into one too many scrapes and then spiralled down.  Could’ve listened to the advice he was given, but didn’t.

Really could have been something.

Out of interest, how did you know him, or is this based on what you seen of him?

Yes played for York, in a short stint.

Best player on the pitch. 

In think he could have been a top international. He had everything apart from the most important, the right attitude.

I know him from the club, from him being 11 up to 18.

Another who came in like a whirlwind and seemed to vanish just as quickly was Jamal Idris in the NRL, what happened to him?

Didn't he go travelling to "find himself"

Don't know, why not just look in the mirror, "Oh look there I am".

Seriously, he seemed to have everthing big, fast, strong and a complete handful for defenders, then no more, vanished.

Idris had the physical attributes to be a big star. However, on several occasions I saw him play, he didn't seem to have the brain to match. He seemed to mentally switch off for a few seconds every now and then, and attackers would take advantage of it.

As far as I am aware Dave Halley still lives in the Wibsey area. A big pal of Stuart Reardon and Leon Pryce. I think after he left the Pro game he might have played a few games at West Bowling.Could be wrong but I think that is where he originated from.

I think Dave Halley ended up playing loose forward for Dudley Hill. His Dad died when Dave was playing at the Bulls, probably had some effect.

The biggest player (in more than one sense)  that disappeared at the Bulls was Craig Richards. He should have ended up a real star.

There's probably a thread on AOB called Nineties Stand-up Comedians who, quite frankly, phoned it in.

You know, "I haven't got any actual jokes, but whatever happened to Spangles, white dog turds, etc. etc.?"
