Where is he now?

Still a big fish in the town of Widnes!! He owns the local nightclub (which he used to own with fellow hard man Kurt Sorensen)and is on the Board of Directors at Widnes Vikings RLFC. His son David now plays regularly at prop for the vikings - (Thanks Gripper)

Jim Mills Player Profile

The Prop Forward/Second Rower joined Halifax in 1965 and made 38 appearances, scoring 6 tries before moving to Widnes in 1968 where he won Great Britain and Wales honours. Mills also had a spell at Workington and opened a successful nightclub in Widnes called "Big Jims".

Jim Mills,a fiery and uncontrollable pommy forward, travelled to Australia and played for North Sydney.

I believe that at the time Mills had the distinction of being the most sent off footballer in Sydney.
