Legendary Sullivan dies, aged 82

Mick Sullivan, the former Great Britain star and Rugby Leauge Hall of Fame inductee, has passed away at the age of 82.

Sullivan made 46 appearances for Great Britain and demanded two world record transfer fees throughout his illustrious career.

After starting at Huddersfield, where he scored almost 100 tries in under 120 appearances, he joined Wigan in 1957 for a fee of £9,500, a world record at the time.

After an illustrious four-year spell in cherry and white, where he won the Challenge Cup and the Championship, he joined rivals St Helens for £11,000.

In a career that saw him amass over 400 appearances, Sullivan became renowned as one of the greatest to ever play the game, playing with and alongside some of the other greats, including Alex Murphy OBE.
