Advertiser (19 Oct 1934) reports in the win over league Leaders Darlington Urwin was selected in place of Lythgoe and showed distinct promise of developing into a really first class pivot.

Advertiser (30 Nov 1934) reports that Urwin has physique, speed and a strong shot. With more confidence he could be a useful player. His chief fault is that he will not go on his own when he gets a forward pass. Instead of trying to beat the backs he passes back instead.
