Re: Rugby Training

In the war years the training was on a Rugby Pitch at the far side of the Keighley Crickst Ground. Also class Rugby was played there. This involved running down Lawkholme Lane , playing the game , then a quick jump in the huge bath under the cricket pavilion which was usually used by the League side. It held all 25 of us at a squash! Lovely when it was sleeeting down. Then of course a run back to continue lessons.

Re: Rugby Training

That ground beyond the cricket ground was certainly in use during my first year 58/59, but then I think form games moved to Marley. I also recall the huge bath set into the floor.
