Title: ... (p53) Tommy protects Ref from hostile Aussies - story from Ronnie Campbell

I was in the bar at Wigan after I refereed the first test match GB v Australia in 1978. 

Australia won late on in game.

I was talking to Tommy Bishop who was over here from Australia whenTwo Aussie spectators came over and started insulting me about the game.

Tommy said ' Shut your mouths ! They were bigger than him and just looked at him , He said ' Just shut up and f,,,k off !

They obviously recognised him because that's just what. they did !! They'd no doubt seen him in the 73 Grand Final Quigs !

He hit everyone but the referee and touchjudges that day !

(Comment from Quigs: Thanks for the story Ronnie.... Tommy didn't miss too many that day. I was at the SCG Hill watching that 73 GF. Arhhhh the memories)
