About this product
- DescriptionAt the height of his success, Eddie Waring was regularly referenced on Monty Python's Flying Circus and he co-hosted It's a Knockout . Yet, many fellow northerners viewed Waring's bumbling on-screen persona as an embarrassing regional stereotype. This work reveals a talented, pugnacious man who took rugby league into the nation's living rooms.
