Hall of Fame Great Britain 1958 Rugby League Vintage T-Shirt

£29.95

In the 1958 Ashes Series, Great Britain lost the first test 25-8 to the Kangaroos in Sydney.

In the second test, the Lions were inspired by captain Alan Prescott who played on until the end despite breaking his right arm in just the 3rd minute of the game, Great Britain leveled the series at 1–all with a 25–18 win over Australia in Brisbane. The injury ended Prescott’s tour as a player. At half time, Prescott was offered a pain killing injection but refused, telling team manager Tom Mitchell “I just can’t come off, Tom. We would be two men short. We have got to win, so I had better help the boys”. Great Britain also lost Dave Bolton with a broken collar bone after just 17 minutes.

Description

With Vince Karalius and Brian McTigue providing the muscle and teenage scrum-half Alex Murphy providing the class, the Lions had the measure of Australia.

Great  Britain wrapped up The Ashes with a comprehensive 40–17 win over Australia at the Sydney Cricket Ground. As he had done in the second test in Brisbane, 19 year old St Helens scrum-half Alex Murphy tormented the home side and was awarded the Man of the Match.

Hull FCs Johnny Whiteley played a key role in the success also combining superbly in the Back Row with Huddart & Karalius. He capped off a fine Series with a try in the 3rd Test victory.
