IN 1954 I was in my last year at Evelyn Street Primary School and can still remember vividly having the day off school and boarding Shadwell’s coach on Lovely Lane for the trip to Odsal to watch the Wire replay against Halifax.

The traffic was absolutely horrendous and by the time we arrived at the stadium, the game had already started.

Together with my neighbours from Wellfield Street, Billy and Brenda Waywell, we watched the game from the advertising hoardings around the top of the Odsal bowl witnessing a magnificent Wire victory.

That Wire team of 1954 will always remain the greatest in my opinion and the half-back combination of Ray Price and Gerry Helme will go down in history as among the best in rugby league.

I left Warrington in 1967 migrating to Australia.

Over the years I have maintained an interest in the fortunes of the Wire through the Guardian web page and on my visits to Warrington I try to see a game.

Would be interested in hearing from others who might have attended the Odsal replay.
