A Wire Fanatic



I have a Nicko story for you.

A silly but true one for you.

Apologies if youve already heard it from someone else. Mike Nicholas finished his career at Cardiff RL.

When we went to Wales in the 80s for our hero John Bevans testimonial match between Warrington and Cardiff, Nicholas starngely asked if he could play on the Wire side.

Well he used to play for us so why not it's only a testimonal (supposedly a friendly). After 5 minutes when Nico has thumped Chris Seldon of Cardiff, the Ref penalised Nico, then 5 minutes later when Nico hit Seldon with another haymaker the Ref warned the pair of them on the lines of "come on lads it's only a friendly" and finally after about 20 minutes he sent the pair off for fighting.

The game was played at Bevans home village in Tylorstown and understandably for a very small club only had a couple of portakins for changing rooms.

Well after having another go at each other as they were walking off we saw one of the changing rooms rocking as they were having an almighty scrap.

At the start of the next season I saw the Ref from that day and asked him his memory of the event. The funniest thing he said was having to send a report to RFL headquarters explaining that he had sent 2 players both from Cardiff off for fighting with each other!!!! .
