Title: ... p61- Memories of Poppa Clay, Noel Kelly and Gas visiting the Pub - Ronnie Campbell

Memories from Ronnie Campbell, (former Top Referee)

I remember Poppa Clay from the 59 Tour.(to the UK) He played loose forward in the Widnes V Australia match noted for Reg Gasnier making his debut in England in which he scored three tries.

Poppa Clay was one of the three Aussie players who strolled into our local pub after that match. Noel Kelly was another and I think Gasnier was the other.

This pub used to have entertainers performing ( Ken Dodd among them )

These three players had got bored at the official reception and slipped away.

They got a great reception at the Pub and indeed got up on stage that night and sang a few songs including Waltzing Matilda.

The three were there till closing time. The Aussies were based in Warrington at that time about seven miles from Widnes.
