Neil Fox
Neil Fox - Rugby League's Greatest Points Scorer By Robert Gate In 1955, Neil Fox, a young rugby league player from Sharlston, signed for Wakefield Trinity. This was the beginning of one of the most phenomenal careers in the sport. He went on to break the game's world record for scoring points: a massive 6,220 which is unlikely ever to be beaten. But there was much more to Neil than being a consistent points scorer: He was a key member of the great Wakefield Trinity side of the late 1950s and 1960s, winning every honour in the game during his time at Belle Vue. He won 29 caps for Great Britain, including playing for the Lions on the 1962 tour to Australia, New Zealand and South Africa. As well as Wakefield Trinity, he played for Bradford Northern, Hull KR, Bramley, Huddersfield, York and played in New Zealand. The book also covers his time as a player-coach at Underbank and life outside the game. He received many honours recognising his contribution to rugby league, including the MBE and a place in the Rugby League Hall of Fame. This biography is the first book about Neil Fox. The author, Robert Gate, is the leading rugby league historian, and has written widely on the game. Every rugby league fan will enjoy this book about a rugby league all-time greats. "This book will offer those of us who were fortunate enough to see Neil in majestic action a chance to savour many memories, but will also offer the younger generation the opportunity to read of a player whose remarkable career will surely never be equalled." John Lindley "A fascinating reflection on the sporting life of this exceptional player." David Hinchliffe Special offer: £10.00 reduced from £18.95
