BIOGRAPHY

This triallist played two matches for the Saints in April 1933. In those two games he collected a try and kicked eight goals. Playing at loose forward he helped the Saints with two convincing victories over Rochdale Hornets and Castleford. The latter match was a famous game for Roy Hardgrave who bagged five tries for the Saints. On paper his performances seem to be impressive. It is believed that he could have been a Welsh Stand Off, possibly Albert Ralph, a former Welsh RU stand off, who signed for Leeds R.L. Club shortly after these trial games. Why the club did not sign him remains a mystery, perhaps he was offered a better deal elsewhere. A long time ago but perhaps the story is in one your family anecdotes?
