Photographs

Photographs from over 400 of the 500 plus Wales Men’s side have been included. These come from a variety of sources…

  • The outstanding archives of official WRL photographer Ian Lovell, who has covered Wales at all levels since 2004.
  • Other photographers in Wales such as Craig Thomas and Richard Long.
  • Official photographs from World Cups, European Championships and Four Nations.
  • The official archives of SW Pix.
  • Many WRL match programmes from the past where we have sometimes had to rescan the images.
  • The personal archives of former Wales international Jim Mills.
  • Everyone in the Rugby League Historians group on Facebook, especially Stephen Wild of Swinton Lions and Mike Latham of Leigh Centurions.
  • Many of the black and white photos were found on Wikipedia and uploaded on historical sites at Castleford Tigers, Huddersfield Giants, Oldham, St Helens and Wigan and it’s a big credit to them for originally sourcing the photos. Permission has either been granted from these sources or used with their automatic online permission as this is a non-commercial and educational site.
