Warrington’s World Cup heroes – Bobby Greenough
6:30am Sunday 9th November 2008 in By Mike Parsons, Sports Editor
WARRINGTON’S Bobby Greenough made just one World Cup appearance.
He played on the right wing in Great Britain’s opening game of the 1960 tournament, a 23-8 win against New Zealand at Odsal.
Greenough had company from clubmate Eric Fraser in that game as Great Britain went on to win the World Cup for the second time.
Although he represented Great Britain on the wing, Greenough was a stand off for Warrington and will be remembered for forming a wonderful half-back pairing with Jackie Edwards, the father of former Wigan star and current Wasps coach Shaun Edwards.
Former Blackbrook amateur Greenough pulled on a primrose and blue shirt 232 times between 1957/58 and 1965/66, scoring 136 tries and helping the club to win the Lancashire Cup Final in 1959 and reach the Championship Final in 1961.
