Bob, dont forget that Dessie played in the Era where we had winter Rugby League and that old shiny mitre ball which was a nightmare to handle at the best of times and it was like a bar of soap if the pitch was wet.

Dessie never had the advantage either of this generous 10 metre rule and modern lightweight kits so what he achieved under the conditions he played in back then makes him an even better legend in my oppinion. Players get pampered these days in comparison with Dessie`s era with water carriers on every 10 mins and the benefit of modern diets and training facilities, Dessie is worthy of a place in any hall of fame in my oppinion.
