Jackie Reid was inducted into the Rugby League Hall of Fame in 2011


A BARLA stalwart, Jackie Reid was an ambassador for the sport at all levels. His playing career began in his home town with Egremont Rangers before turning professional with Whitehaven. It is at Whitehaven in 1956 that he helped the team achieve one of the club’s greatest feats by beating Australia on the Kangaroos tour of that year. The very next season he was part of the famous Whitehaven squad which reached the semi-finals of the Challenge Cup - a feat the club has yet to repeat.
