A shiny hapenny and a bag of liquorice is on offer to those who can successfully guess the identity of the recently-retired mole-eyed, ginger ankle-hacker who wants the record to state that, despite being the worst tackler in the history of organised sport, he could actually tackle all along and that he was just ‘getting people back’ by tearing off chunks of their thigh flesh with his studs on a semi-regular basis:
“Of course I can tackle. There’s plenty of evidence of me being able to tackle.
“I was just getting people back. If someone got me early in the game it was always in the back of my mind that I needed to get them back.
“I didn’t always do it on purpose, some of it was just bad timing, I suppose.”
Consider this a clue…
Go on, have a stab in the dark. It’s a toughy we know, but any guesses Pies fans?
