The Biffs old Pommy Mate Ronnie Campbell emailed me another funny memory from his days as an International Ref.

Ronnie was in a Wigan Rehydration Station drinking with Tommy Bishop when they were rudely interrupted.

See the yarn Here


New Stories added to the Biff- Clay, Kelly, Gasnier - from Ronnie Campbell

Posted by quigs eraofthebiff - Monday, December 01, 2014
TWO NEW STORIES ADDED TO THE ERA OF THE BIFF.

For you Biffoites out there.  I have just added two more great old stories / memories from a friend of The Biff - Ronnie Campbell.  Ronnie is alright even though he was a former senior Pommy Referee.  And blow me down he didn't even try to charge me for the stories.  Narhhh Ronnie is a top bloke (for an ex Ref).

See the stories below.  Year 1959 - They involve Reg Gasnier, Noel Kelly and Brian Poppa Clay.

Remember the Biff is all about sharing our memories from the greatest era of the greatest game of all. There is a link off the pages if you have a story / memory you wish to share with all.
