OUR TRY'N MIGHTY
Published on 22/11/2005

Cumberland has always been a rich source of forwards and no fewer than 17 of the county's 25 post-war test and tour players have been packmen. Front-rowers have been particularly abundant and include mighty props such as Hull's Workington-born DRAKE twins, Jim and Bill, who were capped against France in 1960 and 1962 respectively, although Bill was better known as a fine, quick ball-handling second-rower.

Iron-hard Jim was one of those players who it was advisable not to provoke!
