Vincent “Vince” Peter Patrick Karalius (15 October 1932 – 13 December 2008), also known as “the Wild Bull of the Pampas”, was an English rugby league footballer, and coach. He played as a loose forward, and was part of the Great Britain squad which won the 1960 World Cup. He forged a fearsome reputation as a strong runner of the ball and a devastating tackler. He was also highly regarded as a brilliant passer of the ball, often doing so with one of his large hands. At 25, Karalius was selected to make the 1958 Tour to Australia – a tour that would go down in rugby league history. It was during the “Battle of Brisbane” in 1958 at the Brisbane Exhibition Ground, when Alan Prescott led the Lions to victory with a broken arm that the Karalius “hardman” status was well and truly enshrined. With Prescott in agony with a broken arm, Karalius was also in trouble with an injury to his back but entered the fray in the second half.
During this tour, one Australian was moved to write:”Long-jawed Vince Karalius, the wild bull of the Pampas, is a dedicated wrecker of Australian forwards.”
Thereafter, the nickname stuck and Karalius was firmly embedded in the sporting public’s conscience as what a rugby league forward should represent.
