Thanks for that. I wuz there :-)

Hudds tries, especially the first, were nicely set up.

"Huddersfield full-back Hunter was injured" says the commentary. More
like he was the victim of an attempted decapitation as I remember it.

 The bit shown show the players in a good light and as fast and quick as
some of the modern day players I was impressed. Yes the player who got
poleaxed with no response from anyone it seemed.

No I can't remember either Arthur, but what did surprise me about the clip
was the pace of the game - no ball up jumper stuff.

I'd love to see a video of a full game played before the 4-tackle (now
6-tackle) rule was introduced.  Can anyone oblige?

John.

What a great video!
I can't help thinking of Harry Enfield's Cholmondly Warner, but even then a
great video!

It used to take 4 hours, they took the film to a local procesor and then
waited hence the phrase ,I,ll wait for the movie.
