Ken Thornett in his leeds career in 1960's

I first met ken thornett in 1961 as he came to play for leeds rl as they were known in those days.

I was 9 at the time & my grandma used to take in lodgers/ boarders & on a visit to my grandparents i was introduced to her latest recruit an aussie rugby player by the name of ken thornett.

I thought he was as big as a house but to a little lad of 9 everyone seems big i suppose.

I met him many times in his stint as a leeds full-back.

I emigrated to oz 18 years ago & last week finally tracked ken down& had a good trip down memory lane with him.

He recalled my grandparents & their house located in the "Meanwood" area of leeds , not too far from the "Headingley " ground.

It was great to chat with ken again & talk about the old days.

Regards
Martyn Rae.
