Reactions of Fans to Les Dyl’s Death

Doctor Beeching said,

Les Dyl, a former center for the Leeds RLFC, has died. The backline was excellent, and excursions to Final frequently resulted in a meaningless return voyage.

Night Slater said,

I had the pleasure of meeting him in his Bridlington pub/restaurant a few years ago, reminiscing about his bar in Benidorm. He was a great fella and my first rugby hero from boyhood. Les

Andy Naylor said,

Very sad news, never forget that partnership of Les as left-center & Atky on the left-wing. What havoc they caused opposing teams. R.I.P. Les a true Leeds Legend
Andy G said,
The prototype for the modern physical, skillful center. Les was one of my heroes growing up as a Leeds fan in the 1970s, that left-side partnership with John Atkinson was always a threat in the biggest games. RIP Les


Brent Sheldon said,

RIP Les, a truly great player, and gentleman Were in his final seasons when I started watching Leeds as a nipper and had the pleasure of meeting the great man several times. What a legend. You will be sorely missed Les, thoughts with his family today.
