The call of nature became too much for Artie.

"One night we were playing Bradford Northern at Odsal Stadium," O'Reilly tells, "The field was down a massive set of stairs from the dressing room and it was a real climb. At halftime, you didn't even go back up - it was that far - they had a little hut for us to rest in.

"Early in the second half, Arthur told the referee he was busting for a leak, but the referee said he couldn't hold up the game for Arthur to climb up all those steps to the dressing room and come back. The big fella had a solution. 'Don't worry about that,' he told the referee. 'Just give me a few of my boys around me for protection and I'll do it right here. 'So we formed a ring around Arthur so the crowd couldn't see anything and he did it right there in the middle of the field. Luckily for him it was a foggy night and the crowd couldn't see too much at the best of times. But the poor Pommy ref couldn't believe it; he just stood there and shook his head.
