Keith left because he was coming to the end of his career, iirc. It was a downward move, definitely. Probably as he would have felt he wouldn't get many games at Bradford. I think more players left 'bigger' clubs when the got older back then than is the case today.

I'm sure Keith came back for a season in 93/94 when Peter Fox coached us to runner up slot. He played loose forward in a couple of games. I especially remember a game when we mullered Warrington at Odsal by 50 odd points where he played loose.

I went to middle school with Keith and got into the school team before him because he couldn't kick goals, I could. The experiment was short lived when they found I couldn't tackle!!

You're right. He played a few games for us in 92/93 and his last game for us was as a sub versus New Zealand in the tour match in 1993/94.

Geoff was as a serial clubman - he had more clubs than Jack Nicklaus!

He definitely did, but then Foxy liked the tried and trusted!

David Hill played a handful of games with Hunslet in 1976 and 1977 then returned to Queensbury amateurs.

I believe Arnie Long did join Northern as a winger from junior rugby in Huddersfield. Colin Forsyth played for Featherstone and York before Bradford.

Keith Mumby played in the 1992/93 Regal Trophy final against Wigan at Elland Road (sub). He later donated his runner-up medal to auction for Jon Hamer's testimonial fund. Top man as well as top player!
