Frank Foster v Huddersfield 1960's

After sorting 2 of their pack out, the others said lets get out of here. It was along walk for Frank on the threepenny Stand side.

Just as an aside when Frank was the coach of Barrow they were having a bad time the Directors had a draw as to who would have to tell him it was time to resign

I have not seen any stories of Paul Rose but I would like to nominate him as both a hero and hardman.

Paul would not take a backward step, as a 18yearold starting with HullKR he learned his trade with Frank Foster who said Paul if you think they are hardmen dont forget who is behind you because I am threetimes harder than them.

I remember a match beteen HKR and Warrington when the srum broke up and the hooker was laid flat and some scrapping ensued. At halftime Mick Naughton REF said to Roger Millward I think you had better withdraw Rosie if you do not I will send him off.

Not that this was a strange experience for him.

He was used to playing his part that is part of a game

A great character who became a great friend

Yours in Rugby League
