Title: ... p86 - Brian McTigue (p22) Karalius - GB defeat Aust 25-18 in 2nd test 1958 at Bris- only 8 fit playe

With the touring press writing of problems behind the scenes over the omission of tough forwards Brian McTigue and Dick Huddart, British coach Jim Brough pleaded with team management to allow him to pick the side for the second international.

He then called a meeting with the players, who vowed to start the tour afresh – and shocked league followers when he took them into camp on the Gold Coast.

If the Australians thought the visiting Englishmen had given up and gone on a beach holiday they were soon shown different.

Brough brought McTigue and Huddart into the side and rushed back renowned hardman Vince "Wild Bull" Karalius who had missed the first Test through suspension.
