It was in 1970.Dennis was on International duty against France one Saturday.Prior to this the night before the international, Castleford,Dennis's team,played arch rivals Leeds in a match on the Friday evening.Dennis was ineligble to play due to his International appearance the next day,as were a number of other Cas stars so he watched the match from the stands.Cas put out a very young team that night due to international duties and injuries and he saw the Leeds forwards - Mick Clark a prop in particular - give the young lads a physical hidding.Dennis was incensed!

A few weeks later Cas drew Leeds in the Challenge Cup.Dennis was playing.First scrum Dennis smacked Clark in the face as they were packed down.Clarke said " Nay Dennis we are not having any of that are we?"

" Yes lad we are,all bloody eighty minutes of it" said Dennis.He was true to his word.Dennis terrorised the whole of the Leeds pack during that game.Indeed the press made a point of saying ho fearsome Dennis was.Cas won the game and went on to win the Cup for the second successive year.
