    My grandfather, Harry, played for WA in the 1920s and one story passed down through the family is that he spent a night in a (we thought) Belgian jail for D&D He died in 1971 so there is no way of checking – but could Belgium have been part of the Holland tour in 1925?

    My father Arthur Smith played for WA in the 20’s and poss early 30’s can anyone give me any info regarding him. He once told me he played against Spurs and at half time they were drawing. In the second half I think the Spurs scored at least 10.
    Any info would be gratefully appreciated
