His biography - MARK MY WORDS was a quality read.

What an inspiring player he was for Norths. A true leader.

Apparently Bill Hamilton, who had moved on to the committee, had them lined up, but Tommy Bishop didn't rate them. Probably because they weren't part of his "all conquering" Illawarra team. ...

No, there were Western, Northern & Southern Division teams. Northern Division beat us and then were beaten by Penrith in the quarter finals.

In fact I think several players whom went on to be big stars ...

Adam Muir should not get anywhere near a best of for Norths, no way at all!

On the other hand, i'll never forget Gavin Jones in 86 at Norths. What a rampaging back rower he was. Unfortunately that ...
