As a dedicated Widnes fan, I would like to direct you to page 132 of Artie Beetson’s autobiography, “Big Artie,” when he recalls watching the touring Australian side face Widens at Naughton Park.

“Nothing was easy on that tour. The club games against teams such as Featherstone, Castleford, St Helens and Widnes were only a peg or two down on the Tests in intensity.

I remember sitting in the stand at Widnes and watching a big lanky bloke named Bob Blackwood crash John O’Neill out of the tour in the blink of an eye.

Lurch came in hard over the top of Blackwood in a tackle, and Blackwood came up quickly from the ground to play the ball.

Lurch marked him in the play the ball and my eyes stayed focussed on the pair, so I saw what happened as clear as day.

Blackwood pulled Lurch towards him and hit him with the best head-butt you’ve ever seen.

Lurch knew straight away he was gone, his cheekbone fractured.”

Artie’s book is full of such memories.

You could almost reprint it on your site word for word.

Regards.
