RIP.
Left centre in the team I grew up watching. Great player, great man.

Only 69! Watched him from 79 onwards. Probably never in his prime but still loads of class. Let's hope the likes of Newman can achieve what he did both in a Leeds and England/GB shirt.

Very sad. Fantastic pace when he was young and best centre in the country in the mid 70’s. The most exciting player to watch at his pomp.
RIP Les

RIP Les. Him and Atky were my favourites. Great pace the pair of them.

Very sad to hear. A truly great player I was fortunate enough to see. Absolutely one of my heroes when I was a kid.

Starting to feel old.

I remember Les making his first team debut and being amazed by his speed strength and balance, which caused all kinds of problems for the opposition.
One of those rare players who you always expected would do something special when he got the ball.
In that respect I have to class him with the likes of Atky, whose debut was similarly impressive and Rob Burrow.

RIP Les. Such fond memories of a great talent.
50 years a Rhino / Loiner...long may it go on!

A truly magic player to watch . Will never forget his partnership with Atky - when they broke the line you knew no one would catch them . They were joy to watch . Along with Syd , my favourite centre of all time . RIP.

Watched him from 73 onwards. Great player. As others have said his partnership with JA was as good as it gets. RIP
