Gary Schofield Hits 50
Gary Schofield is an English retired professional rugby league footballer of the 1980s and 1990s and is a member of the British Rugby League Hall of Fame, which comprises the greatest 21 Rugby League players this country has ever seen, having been inducted in November 2013.
At the time of his retirement he was the most-capped Great Britain player of all time along with Mick Sullivan, with 46 appearances. He also won three England caps. He won the 1990 Rugby League World Golden Boot Award as the greatest player on the planet, largely due to his exceptional performances in Great Britain’s backs-against-the-wall Test-series win in New Zealand and his remarkable display as Great Britain beat Australia at Wembley 19–12. The award to Schofield was made retrospectively in 2011 by Rugby League World magazine. Schofield has since coached Barrow Raiders in Rugby League’s Championship.
