Josh McAllister

Respected rugby league journalist Gary Carter is the latest guest on The Last Tackle, with Love Rugby League’s James Gordon and Drew Darbyshire.

Gary talks candidly about the life-changing attack on him prior to an England test match in London that left him in a coma and required him learning how to walk again.

He reflects on the support and time afforded to him by rugby league personalities, including the tributes paid to him by England and Leeds.

Beyond that, the trio debate the merits of the World Club Challenge and how more should be done to incorporate the international game in to the calendar – with Gary giving his unique insight in to what makes the news desks tick at national newspaper level.

There’s also talk on Toronto’s move for Tony Gigot, the prospects of their relegation and how Super League is shaping up after three rounds.
