from jeff lebowski off the RLfans forum




a couple of anecdotes I heard from my father about Frank Foster whilst at Oldham and involving the great Alex Murphy

Firstly involving a night game when Murphy was unexpectedly absent from the team sheet and is supposed to have said "there isn't room for two of us out there on the field tonight so I'll give it a miss!"

This could possibly be a foolow up to an alleged incident where Murph had riled Frank in a previous encounter and had agreed to Frank's "request" to carry on their "discussion" off field. Murphy was then seen by supporters leaping on to the away teams coach within minutes of the end of the game, some say he hadn't even showered!

I was privileged to see Frank play for Oldham as a young lad taken up to 'sheddings by my dad and can remember the hits he used to put in were one of the reasons I fell in love with rugby over that other 'game'
