THERE IS NO SUBSTITUTE FOR MISMANAGEMENT

Many years before replacements were thought about, 1970 actually, the then “B XV” (fourth team in the hierarchy) travelled to play St Helens Rec and on arrival found they had 17 players! This over supply was perhaps down to “team management” taking a belt and braces approach to team selection at the bottom end of the hierarchy, a sort of “select them and we’ll sort it out later” approach. What happened was fortunate given the time and difficulty involved in travelling to St Helens. One of the extra players agreed to stand down but no one else volunteered so the teams  agreed that a substitution could be made at half time. We are left to wonder what the one volunteer got up to during his unexpected free time in St Helens!
