    Ha ha. It could be an intimidating place Naughton park

    Barry Ledger was quick and very good, played international but Offiah could make the best look foolish, always preferred him at Widnes

    'Give it legs' that takes me back

    Gary Stretch always got a bad press from the streets in our town, I don`t know why. He never did St. Helens down always the other way round, he was a World Light Middleweight Champion often giving his time to various causes. He fought Eubank at Super Middleweight he should never have moved up to that weight. He made the mistake of having nose surgery which meant he could not take a big fight in America, if he won that he would have been a UK boxing hero, he had the lot, male model looks, champion boxer and a could string a sentence together. Tried films later on with his buddy Mickey Rourke so think he has still made a good living.

    I could of sworn he'd done that at KR. I just remember being in hysterics after he did it.

    IIRC he'd been out of the side for a while and was brought back because everyone was shit scared of Offiah. Fairly sure it was the first game he didn't score
