Thanks Matt..there were 2 George Greens' who played for Norths, the first one in this photo come across from Easts , and played with us from 1912-1916(I also have the 1916 photo).. then in 1918 (Edward) George Green played for us from 1918-1922..

this is a great photo, and Con sullivan is there, and up the very back row, 3rd from left behind trainer is Australias first Rugby League Captain Dinny Lutge..What also surprises me is how long Eddie Taplin played for the club
1912-1922..

this photo has the 3 Deane brothers in it also lal, Sid and Os.. and the 2 McFarlane brothers

and also Jim Devereux along with Sid Deane were two of our players in Norths team of the century..

The Edward Courtney in the photo is Tedda , Jack,Frank, Robert and Raymonds father.. he was an American, and also an official ... Tedda played 1st grade for Norths in 1910, Frank played first grade for Norths in 1908 and 1909(foundation player), and Jack played from 1923-1929, and 1931..have to check but there is reports, that Jack Courtney may have been the first player to get 100 points in a season..Robert and Raymond sadly were both KIA in WW1

also Norths stalwart and captain Albert Broomham(pronounced Broom/Ham not Brohman) who played with Norths from 1908(another foundation player) to 1914..

there is also a L Barry, he looks like a player,in the back row but dont think he is mentioned in the mighty bears book anywhere, possibly Les Barry(b 1886), siblings born around st leonards mosman area, have to look into the old papers of the day..

Was there a Brian(?) Barry that was a first grade touch judge in the late 1960's. A NS referee. A relation perhaps?

I know a mate of mine used to say he used to enjoy a beer at the NS Anzac Club.

The tables in "The Mighty Bears" list four Courtney's who played 1st grade for Norths:

?. Courtney 1908 (1 game, 0 tries, 0 goals, 0 points)
F. Courtney 1909 (3 games, 1 try, 0 goals, 3 points)
E. Courtney 1910 (12 games, 1 try, 0 goals, 3 points)
J. Courtney 1923-29 & 1931 (82 games, 23 tries, 112 goals, 293 points)

The "Encyclopedia of Rugby League Players" calls J. Courtney "Jim" rather than "Jack". It gives his figures as 66 games, 17 tries, 84 goals, 219 points) and says that his first year was 1924.

J. Courtney's season by season figures (taken from TMB) are:

1923 - 5 games, 0 pts
1924 - 8 games, 4 tries, 15 goals, 42 pts
1925 - 8 games, 2 tries, 13 goals, 32 pts
1926 - 16 games, 10 tries, 37 goals, 104 pts
1927 - 16 games, 2 tries, 30 goals, 66 pts
1928 - 13 games, 3 tries, 5 goals, 19 pts
1929 - 14 games, 2 tries, 12 goals, 30 pts
1930 - 0 games, 0 pts
1931 - 2 games, 0 pts
Total - 82 games, 23 tries, 112 goals, 293 pts

J. Courtney scored 104 pts in 1926, but Harold Horder was the first to break 100. He scored 151 in 1922 from 17 tries and 50 goals.

..John Courtney was born in 1901,No, R Courtney didn't play first grade it was Frank who played 2 seasons in 1908 and 1909, His family verified the photo to me.Robert and Raymond played junior grades in the norths junior district, and were all accomplished sailors.and as I said both KIA in WW1, there are photos of the 2 of them on the AWM website.. in their uniforms.. just have to search for them..he was called Jack Courtney..
