During the filming of the classic movie "this sporting life" starring the late Richard Harris, which was filmed at Wakefield Trinity's Belle Vue ground.

There is a scene where Harris's character is roughed up at the back of a scrum.

Before the scene, Which was filmed using the great Trinity players of the sixties, the Director asked Turner to make it look realistic.

As Harris emerged from the opposite Loose Forward position he was laid out cold by Turner and filming had to be postponed until Harris was back on his feet


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!
