Laurie Bakers excellent biography of Frank (Shanks) Watson prompted Laurie & Ray Abbeys fund-raising efforts to raise money for a grave stone for Franks mother and three of his brothers. Thanks to the generosity of many supporters from the world of rugby league and friends, there is to be a formal meet at the grave at 11:00 am on Sunday morning, 18th August at Hunslet Cemetery. After a short handover, supporters & friends are invited for a drink and a bite to eat at the Hunslet Warriors Clubhouse (opposite Morrisons in Hunslet)
