I don't know what happened with Andy hay. He is one of the best prospects I've seen at Cas. A natural loose forward who was quick enough for the three quarters, with a great attitude. He seemed to lose it, was shipped out to Sheffield, then to Leeds where he suddenly thought he was a hard man under Graham Murray. I never rated him after that.

Maybe it was that blow to the head Kelvin Skerritt, that dirty get, gave him.

Old Handbrake? I remember the popular ditty from the South Stand, "Andy, Andy Hay, he gets the ball and does F*** all, Andy, Andy Hay."

He also became a totally different player at the bulls - far bigger than at Leeds and much less dynamic. That would probably have happened wherever he went.

Haughton was a slightly better version of Andy Hay.


Slighlty better???

Apart from score some long range tries Haughton was pretty poor. Nowhere near the best second rows of his time.

That depends. If the category was 'Looking like Joe Longthorne' he was the best second rower ever.

Andy Hay is one of the biggest "Shirt Pullers " that I have ever seen on a Rugby League field as he was a complete turnstile in defence'

It's a good job that whilst he was at Leeds that he had these guys to do the tough stuff and also his tackling too
McDermott, Newton, Fleary, Morley, Farrell & Glanville

Some pack that...
It's not how much talent you've got, it's what you do with it that counts.

Toughest pack of forwards that I have ever seen whilst watching the the Leeds RL/Rhinos club without a doubt

Has there ever been a tougher pack in modern times?
Andy Hay excluded for obvious reasons :wink:
