The former Leeds star and Australian international Vic Hey, who helped the Yorkshire club win the Challenge Cup in 1941 and 1942, has died in Sydney after a long illness at the age of 82. Hey, one of the game's greatest stand-offs, played six Tests for Australia before moving to England, where he played for Dewsbury and Hunslet as well as Leeds in an 11-year spell.

He returned to Australia in 1946 and coached the Kangaroos to their first Ashes series victory over Great Britain in 30 years in 1950 and to their triumph four years later.
