1977-78. View shows the New Hunslet RLFC team for the season 1977-78. On the back row, left to right, are Gary Kemble, Tony Halmshaw, George Standidge, Alan Griffiths, Linsay Proctor, Stuart Smith and Frank Davies (captain). At the front are Steve Barron, Drew Broatch, Rudi Francis, Roy Appleyard, Murray Netzler and Paul Briers. New Hunslet RLFC was formed in 1973 following the winding-up of Hunslet RLFC after the demolition of their ground at Parkside and the lack of a financially viable new stadium. The club's resurrection was largely a result of the efforts of their former player Geoff Gunney along with local businessmen and supporters.
