About (profile/biography)

Clive Anthony Sullivan MBE was born on April 9th, 1943  and died on October 8th, 1985. He played rugby league football for Wales. Throughout his career, he represented Great Britain and Wales at both Hull FC and Hull Kingston Rovers, as well as Oldham and Doncaster. His captaincy of Great Britain in 1972 marked the first time a black captain led the team. In 1972, he was a member of the Great Britain rugby league team that won the Rugby League World Cup. 


1961: After finishing school and working as a motor mechanic for a time, he joined the army.
A touch judge from the game approached him at the age of 17 after he failed to impress at Bradford Northern.
It was a different story at his trial in Hull. Mr. X was dubbed by the Hull Daily Mail after scoring three tries and signing as a professional.
1963: Sullivan missed his first three seasons because of army duties, three knee operations, and a near-fatal car accident, but he returned to play within three months after the accident.
1964: After spending a year in Cyprus, he left the army.
1967: He made his international debut for Great Britain. Against New Zealand, he scored a hat-trick in three World Cup matches the following year.
1970: After touring Australasia, he participated in only one test as a result of injury.
1971: In the New Zealand series, he won three more test caps.
1972: As captain of Great Britain against France, he played two tests. 
Over the course of his career, Sullivan competed in 17 World Cups representing Great Britain the first time in 1968, then in 1972, and then in 1975 for Wales.


The most tries scored in a career (250) and most tries scored in a match (75) remain Sullivan's records for Hull.


He was 42 years old when he died of cancer in 1985
