Well, referring to the Dessie fighting as Widnes, I believe that he got clear in court. But GB had already dropped him from the tour od australia. After being cleared they asked him to join the squad. Des refused as he should never have been dropped in the first place and he never played for GB again. Sahme as he did deserve to play and tour again.

best moment? '91-92 season, wilderspool, verses Castleford. It was a night game and Graham Steadman had just been chosen as Great Britan 1st choise fullback. Des was in the international wilderness. A long hoof down pitch by steadman was gathered by Wire fullback Dave Lyon who cleared to his 20 line cantral position, Fletcher Street end. At acting half swooped Des. He picked up the play the ball and skips off to his left, straight up the middle of the pitch weaving through the onrushing Cas defence.

He burst clear, untouched and raced head-on with Steadman (GB 1st choise remember?) Des just shimmied. Steadman, bemused, fell on his arse and Des raced away to launch himself full length under the sticks at the railway end with no other defender in sight. Classic! my favorite memory from my favorite player.

Didn't score enough tries for a first class winger, but when he did, they were always special.
