Was it 1958 last time in this country? Even I wasn’t quite around back then.

’59 I think mate, which was before I was hooked on RL. The first time I saw the Aussies live was when they put 50 past GB in the second test at Station Road in ’63. A few weeks later Swinton and the tourists drew 2-2.

We won a series in  ’70 Down Under, but the only tour I’ve done was ’92. It did of course include that magical night in Melbourne, but we still lost the series 2-1. Reg Bowden was the organiser, and the legendary Pat Price was on the same tour as me. Top lady! Sadly missed.
