Challenge Cup-tie, March 1970

I was born in Leeds and lived there till moving to Hull in 1971. I first saw Rovers at Headingley in 1968, the year I was introduced to live rugby league by a Leeds-supporting friend. To his disappointment, I was more interested in ‘the other side’ and over the next couple of years went to quite a few more Rovers away games – Bradford, Castleford, Featherstone, Hunslet, Leeds again, etc.

From 2014: Making up for lost time

My first Rovers memory was in 2004. I was 14 years old and recieved some free tickets from school for a Friendly with the Kazan Arrows.
