Anyone remember the midweek game when Tommy Bishop lead an invitation side against the visiting Poms at Endeavour.

Was around 70 I think, not sure, could look it up but to lazy.

The invitation side was made up of mostly up and comers from the clubs and was to be a hit out for the Poms as a build up to test.

It was held on a Tuesday I believe. Broke the existing crowd record for endeavour then. I think it was a crowd of 14,000

The scribes of the day had the invitation team to be steamrolled by the Poms and it would be a friendly game as TB was playing against his old international team mates for the first time.

Well all that changed when Tommy cracked Doug Laughton I think (not 100% here on the Pom, but it was a big second rower) and an all in errupted. When Tommy cracked Laughton it wasn't hidden. Doug had taken the ball at speed and was a demolition machine. He was in a bit of a gap right near the halfway line, heading north towards the tryline. Tommy sized him up jumped two feet off the ground and laid a cross on the point of his chin. TB gave him about 5 stone, and 12 inches in height and weight.

A mighty blue ensued. And guess what. The crowd loved it.
