I remember big Jack Fairbank playing for Leeds.

As Leeds kicked off he caught the ball and ran 50 yds to touch down in the corner but before putting the ball down he stopped on the line and waited for two of the opposition to come and tackle him, he pushed them away as if swatting a fly then put the ball down, he was a real comedian.

Another incident....Leeds were penalised and the opposition were given a very kickable penalty...there was a bit of a rumpus and the ref had to go and sort it out..the ref dropped his white handkerchief at the point where the penalty would be taken...Big Jack moved it about 15yds nearer the touchline to the amusement of all in the Southstand. He missed the penalty.

Great days

Best of luck
Marshall
