1993 Strollers help out Lion
On his return from the 1993 Lions Tour to New Zealand, Wade Dooley was looking for a suitably hard game to re-introduce himself to the rigours of English Club Rugby. Quite naturally he begged the Strollers for a game and as we were a man short that week we were happy to oblige.
Gus Glover was packing down behind him and describes Wade’s contribution thus:
“It was Roy of the Rovers stuff really. We were deep in our half when Wade decided to take a hand. He grabbed the ball and fending off the opposition left and right proceeded to storm down the pitch. I followed in his wake stepping over the bodies and admiring his technique. When he arrived at the opposition’s try line he turned, saw me, said “Well backed up” and passed to me to score.”
