Harold Wagstaff died 80 years ago on 19 July 1939. This week’s ‘Rugby Reloaded’ takes a ten-minute tour of his life and times to explore why he was he arguably rugby league’s greatest-ever player, and also how he came to symbolise league culture in Britain and Australia. For more information about ‘Ahr Waggy’, go to www.HuddersfieldRLheritage.co.uk, where there are also details of the Wagstaff Heritage Trail organised by David Thorpe. There is also a new biography of Wagstaff out this week by Robert Gate and Graham Williams, called ‘A Northern Union Man’ published by London League Publications at www.llpshop.co.uk
