The name ‘Brough’ should instantly make a rugby league fan sit up and take notice.
When Danny Brough retired from rugby league at the end of October, it ended the career of one of the sport’s greatest figures.
Brough retired as the fifth highest points scorer in Rugby League history and enjoyed an illustrious 19-year career.
The half-back’s career began with Dewsbury Rams before a two-year stint with York City Knights where his performances earned him a move to Betfred Super League side Hull FC in 2005.
In his first season for the Black and Whites, Brough was instrumental in helping the club win the Challenge Cup for the first time since 1982 with his drop goal proving the difference in the 25-24 win over Leeds at the Millennium Cardiff Stadium.
Brough would go on to enjoy spells with Castleford Tigers and Wakefield Trinity between 2007 and 2010 before moving to Huddersfield Giants for whom he would represent for nine seasons.
At the end of the 2013 season, Huddersfield lifted the League leaders shield and Brough was named Steve Prescott Man of Steel for his performances in the Claret and Gold. He would return to Wakefield Trinity for two seasons before ending his Betfred Championship career with Bradford Bulls.
On the international stage, Brough represented Scotland on 24 occasions, including helping the Bravehearts win a memorable 18-18 draw against New Zealand at Workington in the 2016 Four Nations.
Now, however, it’s the turn of his son, Will, who has just signed a professional contract with his father’s former team, Wakefield. A playmaker in goal, Will is certainly following in his father’s footsteps.
Everyone at Serious About Rugby League is hoping to see Will make it to the big time!
