Thanks, Dave Topliss, for playing a blinder...

There's a point in Sully when the legendary Clive Sullivan wins his Challenge Cup winner's medal with Hull FC and he utters the words, "Thanks, Dave Topliss, for playing a blinder" in recognition of man-of-the-match Toppo's efforts in securing the silverware against Leeds in the 1982 replay. Well, the legendary Dave Topliss died yesterday, following a heart attack during a game of five-a-side football. He was 58. Thanks for the great times down the Boulevard and elsewhere, Toppo.
