Martin Lea (part of an extract of the story submitted Martin for Memorable Matches entry on the 1970 World Cup Final)




Quigs- This is an extract from the story Martin kindly submitted for the Memorable Matches regarding his attendance to the 1970 World Cup Final .....

However, as the game went on it spilt into a blood - bath and Dennis decided to enjoy himself, sorting out the two Aussie props and anyone else that got in the way.In one incident I remember an Aussie off - loading a ball as he fell down.Play went one way and Dennis came rushing in the other direction kicking the aussie guy right in the face.

Malcolm Reilly was a Castleford team mate of Dennis's and my Dad knew Malcolm quite well. Malcolm once said to my Dad there was only one guy in the whole of Rugby that he was frightened to play against and that was Dennis Hartley, "thank God he is on my side" said Malcolm.
