Your worthy contributor who told us about Rocky Turner laying out big Richard Harris while filming "This Sporting Life" may have it right, but I seem to remember it was actually Stanley Baker, one of acting's hard men himself, who figured in the incident.

After being knocked out by Derek and having lost two teeth, he quit the movie, with words like "Stuff this for a game of soldiers - this is too tough for me" Richard Harris was the next choice. And it made his name.

Can anyone put the record straight on this one?

Glad to hear Rocky's still going strong. I'm a long-standing Hull KR supporter - from the age of 5 - but just too young to have seen him play for us.

Those were the days!

Quote from Director ( was posted on Wakefield Trinity Heritage Facebook Page ... 5/11/2013)

Quote from the Director of 'This Sporting Life'....
The director told Derek Turner, 'I want you to hit Richard Harris just like you would an opposition player in a normal game'. So when Harris, in his role as loose forward, broke from the next scrum, Turner hit him with a screamer of a stiff arm. The actor was carried off unconscious and took longer to shake the cobwebs from his head than he took to sing his 1968 hit single 'McArthur Park'. Filming was postponed for 48 hours!
