OK I'll fess up and say first I'm a Souths supporter but I have always had a soft spot for Norths and my boss on the Central coast is REAL Norths tragic. Anyway I am also a collector of Rugby League memorabilia. I do have some really nice Norths oriented stuff from 1921-22. I wanted to post pictures from this era for Norths fans to enjoy if anybody is interested. I will continue to post items if I get a respnse from anybody saying they are enjoying seeing it. I will post one item to start. It is a nice cover to an early Rugby League news. I hope it works and I hope you like it. Cheers Mark

Ok here's another. Long ago cartoons were all the rage in newspapers. When there was a major footy match a cartoonist such as the famous Arthur Mailey would draw a review of the match. He was famous for his cricket cartoons as well. Here is one about Norths kicking Souths out of the City Cup which was a major competition in those days. Norths won the 'double' in, I think, 1921.

Ok let's see if you like this one. This has to be posted in two parts. As a Norths fan no doubt you have seen this from 'True Blue'. As a Souths fan who like old photos, I was dreaming of one day seeing the original of the photo which has Souths v Norths playing.

Part 2- ....well anyway I was lucky enough to come across a copy of 'THE DAILY MAIL', an old weekly newspaper that sometimes had articles about rugby league. This one came from 1921 and had a large article about rugby league and a double page spread of photos of the match of the day- North Sydney v South Sydney. On this page was the original photo. I post it for you viewing pleasure and if anybody likes it then I will post the others.

With referance to the photo directly above dated 27th of April 1921..
after quite a bit of searching I am starting, I think, to put a bit of picture to this, and christian names to the faces.. it has been a bit of a search thus far.. but here goes.
North Sydney Squad pictured.from back Row left to right
1) George Green
2) Jack Baker
3) James Pye
4) Edward Taplin (Ted)
5) Cecil Blinkhorn
6) Reginald Farnell
7) Chris McGrath
8 Alexander Buckle
9) Herman Peters

Front row (left to right)
10) Dallas Hodgins
11) Frank Rule
12) Duncan Thompson(Vice Captain)
13) Harold Horder (Captain)
14) Jack Ives (Clarrie)
15) George Horsey
16) Alf Faulls

so I'm pretty certain thats the 16 indentified in the photo, I'm also under the impression that this photo was taken on saturday 23 April 1921, as both photos were taken in the same spot maybe taken just before the game?so thats why I think this is a pretty accurate naming of the 21 team.
Now the team photo dated in the The rugby League News July 1922 ,at the top of the page also has the addition of 2 more players
17) Norman Proctor( Glebe 1916-1921:Norths 1922-1924)
18 H Waterhouse(Norths 1917-1919: 1922-1927)
Norm Proctor did play for the Bears for awhile so definitely 1922. .. it is looking likely the photo at the very top of the page from Rugby League News might be the 1922 squad, especially when Horsey is inset, he had already left by '22..



i have is a player called Henry Pidcock, now henry got around a bit..(Annandale 1915-1916:1918-1919:Norths 1920-1921:Balmain 1921-1922:Glebe 1923 -1924) nearly had as many clubs as Phil Blake, so i will have to find out whether he played for us in 21 then moved across to Balmain the same year..might have been a residency rule I wonder..??

Reg Farnell would have been 30 in this game he come from over randwick way played for Norths 1915-1918 played for Easts 1919 then norths again then player bio says from 22-23 but was obvious in the 21 team photo against souths in round 1 1921..


I think it's important we get the info accurate especially when next season marks the 90th anniversary of our 1st premiership..plus I think the city cup victories were in 1920 and 1922.thus the cartoon Hallett and Proctor 1922..

found agreat site on archival newspapers.. on of the articles from the SMH dated Mon.22nd August 1921 referring to City cup game between Souths and Norths at North sydney oval, so this was the team that played on the day 20.8.21 , but this was after the 21 season as there was only 8 games due to the kangaroo tour, thats why the season was cut short.. but the city cup came after the regular season. Souths beat Norths at NSO on the day this is game 9..score 23/16
Norths team on the day
N Proctor
H waterhouse
A Buckle
F Rule
P Tranquille
E Taplin
E Cuneo
J Pye
G Green
J Baker
W Foster
A Faull
R Farnell

I have been reading a few items on the forum and there was mention of 'THE REFEREE. This was a great sporting newspaper from the early days. In fact even when other newspapers did not report in any detail league games, especially during WW1 THE REFEREE would. C J Davis was one of the, if not the BEST league writer of all time. Another one from that time was Claude Corbette from THE SUN.
Anyway I thought I would post an example from 1921. I got this from a football annual from 1919. The previous owner was a Norths supporter and had used the book as a scrapbook of Norths articles from 1920-22. This article is about a game, I believe, that was the best moment in Norths history.
