I recall a winger in the 1960s, played for Blackpool I think, whose speciality was leaping over players who tried to tackle him. An American, possibly. 

Four legs good - two legs bad

Chuck Wiseman?

Thanks for the prompt but don't think it was him. Played several games. Saw him at Swinton late 1950s early 1960s but there are probably not many fans from those days still around. 😳

John Stopford. Rated by van Vollenhoven as his finest opponent.

Oh yes. The same frisson of excitement when he got the ball as generated by Martin Offiah.

Paul Lord for Oldham, he was a genuine speed merchant. Oldham v Warrington cc semifinal, Mike ford chipped through, lordy outpaced the defence to touch down. John Holdsworth ruled off side. He didn't believe anyone was that fast. Replays show he was on side . 

‘Flash’ was exceptionally quick. I was over the moon when Wakey signed him, but he never seemed to get picked, dunno why?

Andy Wilson & Phil Fox I thought were both underrated in my opinion.

The wingers who succeeded Offiah and Robinson at Wigan were actually very good, but nowhere near so well-remembered. Rob Smyth, for instance.
