BIOGRAPHY

John Mantle by Dave Dooley:

John Mantle was a multi-talented athlete and sportsman. He attended Bedwelty Grammar School where he became a Wales youth soccer international,[he played for Wales at U 19s level and was offered full professional terms by Wolves when they were top of the old First Division] Welsh and Monmouthshire triple jump champion and schools cricket captain. He was, of course, a rugby player to boot! John played for the Welsh Secondary Schools at Under 19s and senior level.John attended Loughborough College where he played Rugby Union for three years, captaining the College in his third year and won the Middlesex sevens. John also played county rugby for Leicestershire whilst at College. He continued his development as an all round athlete becoming the college shot putt champion.

He joined Newport Rugby Union Club, the `Black and Ambers`, after completing studies at Loughborough College. During his relatively short stay at this prestigious club John played 27 games from 1962/3 to 1964/5 scoring 8 tries mostly as a number eight.

Newport RU Record

1962/3 : 2 matches

1963/4 : 7 matches scoring one try

1964/5 : 18 matches scoring seven tries

Despite this brief club record John Mantle managed to win two Welsh caps in 1964 against England and South Africa. [he actually played on 8 occasions, but only two were considered full internationals]His final cap was on the tour to South Africa with Wales. Mantle was being groomed to be the cornerstone of the welsh pack when he was "lured to the North".

Mike Dams (The Sorcerer - Newport RU Historian) recalls:

I remember playing against John Mantle at schoolboy level. Although he made his name at Union as a back row forward he played that day at centre. He was big and the over-aged 19 yr old and scored at least one try against us! I tried to tackle him once and was brushed aside like a feather. St Helens`s gain - Newport and Wales` loss!!

John Mantle signed for the Saints on Christmas Eve 1964. He was drafted into Saints` greatest ever set of forwards that included John Tembey, John Warlow, Bob Dagnall, Cliff Watson, Ray French, Mervyn Hicks and Doug Laughton. This pack of aces was augmented by all-time great backs including Alex Murphy, Tom Van Vollenhoven, Len Killeen and Billy Benyon, with Frankie Barrow vying with Kel Coslett for the full back berth. Good quality players including Wiliams, Tony Barrow, Peter Harvey and Wilf Smith probably resulted in the highest quality playing squad ever assembled at Knowsley Road.

He joined a Saints team on the crest of a wave. The side had remained unbeaten going into the new year of 1965 having won 21 games on the bounce and carried off the Lancashire Cup in the process and attracting a huge home and away support. John made his debut for the Saints on January 23rd., 1965 against Whitehaven at home. It was a 16-3 victory.

My first encounter with John Mantle was as a fourth former at Grange Park Technical School when this strapping Welshman turned up to take over Steve Llewellyn`s PE timetable. It was quite daunting to have a current Saint as a teacher - what could you shout at Knowsley Road if he dropped the ball or missed an easy tackle? As a young rugby coach John actually introduced some team play and forward tactics into the school teams` play. This was quite a novelty as most Sintelliners were expected to know how to play rugby (any code) just by being born or bred in the town.

At school I have three abiding memories of `Mr. Mantle`. On one occasion he threw me into a lake whilst on walking holiday in the Langdale valley - just because I referred to him as `Lurch` (the Addams Family had just appeared on the box). Secondly, I caught him doing extra weight training prior to his RL international debut versus France in 1966 - I had never seen anyone do step ups on two benches with a rack of iron on their shoulders. Finally, I remember how saddened and moved he felt when the Aberfan disaster happened - he must have felt tremendously homesick at the time.

John`s career at the Saints was immensely successful. His finest match for me was on October 1st., 1965 against a very fine Oldham side. Towards the end of the match Saints were winning 18 to 17 and it was anybody`s game when Mantle received the ball in the left centre position 30 yards from the Oldham line. He drew the full back and sold a beautiful dummy to race behind the posts and seal a 23-17 victory. Following that match many pundits predicted a big future for John in the centres but thankfully Joe Coan retained him in that glorious Saints` pack. That season also saw John collect a set of four winners medals and claim a place on the 1966 Lions Tour to Australasia.

In all John Mantle played 435 matches for St Helens (7th on all time list), scoring 68 tries, and kicking 2 goals for a total of 208 points.

Following his departure from the Saints in 1976, John Mantle`s travels as a player and coach took him to Salford, Leigh, Barrow, Keighley, Oldham, Cardiff and Blackpool Borough. `Big John` turned out for more games than any other Welsh `Convert` and scored a try in his last competitive match for Blackpool Borough against Bramley on March 21st 1982 at the grand old age of forty.

John still lives in St Helens and has retired from teaching.
