Biography of John Warlow



HERITAGE NO : 812
John Warlow by Dave Dooley:

John Warlow played in the successful Saints teams of the sixties and early seventies. He was a 6 feet 1 inch, 15 stones second row forward from Llanelli RU Club and a welsh Rugby Union international. He was signed in a pub by the then secretary Basil Lowe and Saints Chairman Harry Cook. The directors of Workington Town were also present attempting to sign `Big John`. Also in attendance to witness, and later celebrate, the signing of a Saint, were John`s team-mates from Llanelli.

Big John` was a stalwart of the "pack of aces" and played alongside great forwards like Cliff Watson, John Mantle, Kel Coslett, John Tembey, Mervyn Hicks, Ray French and Doug Laughton. Warlow was a tough nut with the ball in his hands and a powerful tackler. His unstinting efforts and consistent performances should have been rewarded with more international caps. With players of his calibre battering the opposition for the first hour, many a match was characterised by the classy backs running riot in the final twenty minutes.

He signed for the Saints on the 23rd. of October and made his debut against Liverpool City on the 30th. of November, 1963.He lodged with the infamous Minnie Cotton in Windsor Road for a spell. Minnie received national attention when she single-handedly invaded the pitch in the 1966 Championship Final against Halifax. Minnie set about a couple of Halifax forwards with her umbrella as retribution for some rough play against her lodger.

He had two spells with the Saints, leaving the Club after the end of the 1968/69 season for a stint with local rivals Widnes. John returned to Knowsley Road in November 1973 to complete his dazzling career with the Saints. His last match for the Saints was against Leeds in the 1975 Premiership Final against Leeds when Saints dipped surprisingly after winning the Championship at a canter.

In 235 games plus 10 as substitute and 13 as non-playing substitute John scored a total of 27 tries for an aggregate of 81 points. After his playing career was over John returned to South Wales. These days `Young Warlow` can often be located visiting the Llanelli RU clubhouse supporting the Scarlets.
