stevo (Mike Stephenson UK League Commentator) interview on radio


Stevo on the left playing for Penrith, Australia.

Q - Hard work never killed anyone. When you played, who was the toughest opponent you've ever played against?

(Mike) - A guy called Frank Foster, who was a Great Britain international. He was absolutely solid. Tough as teak. I don't think I've ever met anybody as tough as Frank.

Q - Was he a big lad?

(Mike) - Bigger than me [laughs], but that didn't matter. As much as you tried to hurt him, you knew it was just a waste of time. He just absorbed punishment like water into a sponge. And never complained. You've got to respect a guy like that. He's probably one of the reasons why my face looks like it does [laughs].

Q - Was he one of those hard but fair psychopaths?

(Mike) - Erm... let's just say he was... he was on the fringe of being penalised. But that's how it was in our day, and that's how we all were.
