Title: ... p103 - Memories from Brian Bevan - from Ref Ron Campbell Widnes

I Remember Brian Bevan and he was unbelievable
What a player.  When he got the ball the crowd used to hum with expectation.

What's he going to do now ?

Usually bamboozle the defenders.

I had the privilege of refereeing him in a testimonial game at Wilderspool when he was in his fifties and long retired from active rugby .

He scored a try off a suspected forward pass and a defender said to me That was forward Ron

I awarded the try and told the defender If you think I'm disallowing a try by Brian Bevan you are very much mistaken . The defender laughed and said fair enough Ron.

I told him your on the same pitch as the great Brian Bevan you can brag about it in years to come

And I still say when people mention him - I refereed him and I'm very proud to be able to say that !
