Elderly Hanley, he got all three from Andy Dannatt.

Seriously, other than Delaney I don’t recall any serious facial injuries, and even that wasn’t down to foul play.
It's not how much talent you've got, it's what you do with it that counts.

Matt Adamson in CC semi final. Played the final against Bradford a couple of weeks after and if I remember correctly went off injured after possibly being targeted.
Think Sinfield may have had broken nose against Warrington when they were still really dirty and not very good. Seem to remember he refused to shake hands.
Also Hugh Wadell against Widnes in the game I think Powell may have swallowed his tongue in.

It's not much remembered as Leeds kept it to themselves so opposition players didn't target him but Sinfield played through the back end of the 2010 season with a fractured cheekbone and eye socket -

https://www.yorkshireeveningpost.co.uk/ ... -1-2255035

According to that article Brent Webb also picked up a "similar injury" in the final play off game vs Wigan (great detailed reporting as ever YEP). With all that and McGuire and Peacock already out it's not really a surprise 2010 was the year off from what would otherwise have been six in a row.

There is no nostalgic longing for the return of the high shot, late or otherwise, from me.

I suspect he meant good memories as in "well remembered"

The game in the late 80s early 90s was much dirtier than now but it had been cleaned up a fair bit from 88-89 when high tackles were properly outlawed with longer suspensions.

I remember we bought Medley and had designs of playing him in the centres. He played on the wing for us on the odd occasion.

Agree that he and Powell would've enjoyed playing now.

Nor from me. Merely reflecting upon a type of injury that has thankfully become far less common.

Think I was referring to memories of Paul Medley running flat out though I could certainly have made that clearer, it seems :)

Going back to the wingers. I don't think I don't think we can underestimate the importance of the change to the corner post rule. As lethal as Makinson, Johnstone and Eden are, a large proportion of their trys wouldn't have counted a decade ago.
