Allan Bishop, St Helens, UK
(tommy's little brother)

St Helens



When tommy was playing for barrow in 1964 i think it was.

He got picked for his county lancashire to play against the touring new zeland side. This was his first rep honour, well the week before the match he got injured, his shoulder popped out he thought his first honour had gone by.

But he knew an old man in st.helens who was a legend in the town for getting rugby players back on the field with old fashioned methods.

He strapped tommys shoulder in such away that he played against the kiwis, he did such a good job he got man of the match in that game even though he was in terrible pain.

One tough player an a good one
