My old boss at work was one of his friends and played rugby with him. He had some great stories. I never met him but he was obviously quite the character. RIP
I watch every game on DVD (thanks Fred) but it will never beat being behind the sticks.

I remember being told of Geoff’s first training session
At Huyton.
He told the players to take up their usual positions and they all ran behind the goal posts waiting for the conversion to be taken.

I just watched “Another Bloody Sunday” again. Brilliant stuff, with Geoff shouting at the ref the classic line “he’s pullin’ his ur’ sur” when it kicks off at a scrum in a game.

This seemingly worthy gentleman was no longer on the scene at Leythe when Bongser first wended his way to former HQ. But after all the short but unanimously approving eulogies hereupon, he thinks that, tomorrow, he may very well watch the Youtube version of "Another Bloody Sunday" that he's located after VL's impliance that it was still available somewhere. Might fill a nice half hour after the England v France game. :thumb:
