BIOGRAPHY

Paul David Newlove by Dave Dooley:

Paul Newlove was born in Featherstone on the 10th of August, 1971. He started his professional career with Featherstone Rovers before moving to Bradford Northern in the early 1980s. Paul is the son of ex-Hull and Featherstone Rovers star John. Whilst he was on the books of the Rovers he became the youngest ever GB international when he made his debut against New Zealand at the age of 18 years and 72 days.

Saints smashed the world record on November 29th., 1995 when they paid Bradford Northern `250,000 cash and sent Sonny Nickle, Bernard Dwyer and Paul Loughlin to Odsal. This deal was brokered by David Howes and partly financed with the sponsorship of local firms.

Paul proved an instant success at the Saints. He scored a try in his debut game against Workington Town on December 3rd 1995. The Saints went on to record a 58 points to 10 in that game. It was not too long before Paul formed a devastating left wing partnership with Anthony Sullivan that was to serve the Saints magnificently for the next seven seasons.

Paul was the Saints flagship in their efforts to end the Wigan trophy monopoly as the Game entered the Super League era. That first Super League season seemed to be one long hot sizzling summer as Saints swept all before them to lift the Championship and Challenge Cup double for the first time in thirty years. Paul Newlove was in his pomp as he ran through, brushed off or side-stepped opponents to end the season as top try scorer with 36 tries from only 27 matches. This haul included four hat-tricks against Castleford (4/2/96), Workington (31/3/96), Halifax (21/4/96) and Oldham (5/5/96). Paul ended the season with Challenge Cup and Championship medals.

Further success followed in the 1997 as Saints defeated Bradford Bulls to lift the Challenge Cup for the second year in succession. Paul scored another hat trick against Hull in a 54 points to 8 victory that season, his last for the Club. That season he scored 19 tries and remarkably scored the same number in the next two seasons. Throughout this period Anthony Sullivan was benefiting immensely from Paul`s slick service at centre.

Paul collected his first Grand Final winner`s ring in the 8 points to 6 defeat of Bradford in the 1999 Final at Old Trafford. In the following season Paul was plagued by injury, and one of these in the 54 points to 16 demolition of Wigan in the play-off series kept him out of second successive Grand Final. He was a grateful spectator as Saints outclassed their rivals by 29 points to 16. Newlove had regained his fitness in time to face Brisbane Broncos in the World Club Challenge Final at the start of the 2001 season. On a cold Bolton night who will ever forget the way that Paul skinned Wendel Sailor with his trademark sidestep off the left foot to set up Chris Joynt for a try to square the match. The ultimate victory in that match by 20 points to 18 duly completed Paul`s winners` medals collection.

The 2001 Challenge Cup Final victory over Bradford Bulls at Twickenham had brought Paul a third Challenge Cup winners medal. However, that 2001 season was cut short for Paul following a serious Achilles Tendon injury in the game against Hull - before his injury Paul had scored 15 tries in 21 games. As a long career was taking toll on his body Paul announced his retirement for international rugby during the 2001 season.

The 2002 season brought Paul a third Championship winning ring as Saints again dispatched a paranoid Bradford Bulls by 19 points to 18. Although bagging just 7 tries in 27 outings in that season the discernible fan would have noted Paul`s classic timing and distribution contributed greatly to the tries scored on the left wing by Tony Stewart and John Kirkpatrick. The season also illustrated a much under-mentioned aspect of Newlove`s attributes, namely his defence. Paul`s final season at Knowsley Road, the 2003 campaign, brought no further honours. However, 134 tries in 208 games by the end of the 2003 season generates a ratio of over 64 tries per 100 games - fifteenth on the all-time list of Saints top try scorers and cementing his rightful place as one of the game`s best ever centres.

Paul moved to Castleford for the 2004 season but further injuries ended his career, in a campaign when he rarely managed to don the Tigers` jersey.
