The Chair Maker - from the www.rlfans.com - St Helens forum




i remember seeing a bbc sport report on him, showing him working for Castleford council as a flagger and lifting traditional yorkstone paving slabs off the back of a lorry.

It takes real strength to lift these all day for example yorkstone or granite paving used on streets weighs between 2.5 and 2.7 tonnes per cubic metre.

Now thes flags are generally about 5 cm's thick and about a metre long and wide so 20 flags weigh 2.5 tonnes which means each flag weighs approximately 125kg in old terms 275lbs.

Wardy lifted them with his bare hands off the back of lorries all day then played a game of rugby.
