The new ‘Rugby Reloaded’ looks at the career of Maurice Lindsay, who died last week. From Wigan to the RFL to Super League, Maurice changed the face of rugby league as radically as he divided opinion about himself.

We examine the irresistible rise, indelible impact and final legacy of rugby league’s most charismatic administrator.
