Amateur Era Devotion to Duty

An extract from the Citizen, 23 January 1937, entitled PLAYERS’ KEENNESS:

“There have been complaints sometimes of apathy among the players, but we get some of the other stuff as well. Reg Meek, Albert Meek and Bert Greenman came home from work that morning after a week on the gruelling night shift. They trotted on to Kingsholm like two-year-olds, and played hard right to the end, in the front rank of the scrums.”
