Biography of Dave Chisnall



HERITAGE NO : 922
Dave Chisnall by Alex Service

Dave Chisnall was a big, burly sort of forward who defied his physique with a brilliant turn of pace and sidestep! Think in terms of Abe Terry, for comparison. The brother of Eric and Les, who also played professionally, Dave was a sensational selection for the 1970 Australian tour when he played for Leigh. Unfortunately, Dave missed the 1971 Challenge Cup final through suspension and moved to Warrington with Coach Alex Murphy, where he appeared in seven major finals for the Wires, including two Challenge cup finals in 1974 and 1975. Spells at Swinton and Leigh followed before he came to Knowsley Road to join Eric. He appeared in the 1977 Premiership final defeat of Warrington, the Floodlit final of the same year and was in the front row against Leeds in the classic 1978 Challenge Cup final at Wembley. Dave also toured Australia with the England World Cup squad in 1975.

Dave provided much steel and experience in the Saints front row during his spell at Knowsley Road. He was to return to the club later as Assistant to Coach Alex Murphy in the late 1980s, when the Saints reached the Challenge Cup final against Halifax. Dave has also been Head Coach of Pilkington Recs in tandem with his role of steward at the Windle City Social Club.
