Kevin Tamati, another legend in the way the word used to mean. Not how it is these days i.e over-used!

I was sixteen years of age and had gone to a sixth form college in Warrington to study for my A levels when I decided to try out for their rugby league team.

Nobody told me though that the coach of the team was the one and only Kevin Tamati!

I think he had a role developing RL in the local area, but personally all I developed was a desire to go home to my mum when he trotted over the whitewash and lined up to play against us.

Here was the man who I had watched make mincemeat out of top flight RL players for years and who we had worshipped as our hero on the terraces of wilderspool, not just for the physical side of his game, but his sublime and often brilliant ball skills as well.

Obviously he wanted to see how us hopefuls "performed", but I was shaking like a sh*tting dog under the high ball that soon came my way thinking foolishly he would come and smash me into the ground.

Obviously he didnt, and we went on to have the pleasure of learning the game from Mr Tamati.

That was until some of the lads got carried away in a local derby match, and the rest is history!
