Hi guys,

I'm Andrew (co-owner of Rugby League Project) just dropping in to say that as of last year, I began adding in team line ups for every NSWRL game (and City Cup game) for all clubs from 1908. I've completed every season up until 1925 thus far.

As we are a project and there are some exquisitely dedicated researchers here, I would love it if you could run an eye over the records we have for the Bears in those completed years and let me know of any errors, or if you know of any players first names etc.

The research for these, like everything else historical on the site, was done via several sources, mostly newspaper archives.

We were lucky enough to have a keen researcher who travelled around everywhere looking for old programs which helped immensely.

Thanks,
Andrew

Thanks Andrew, this is a great project. I made a preliminary list of NS 1st grade players a few years ago with the intention of allocating every players a number. I haven't quite got back to that yet. My sources were mainly the lists that David Middleton compiled cross-checked with the Encyclopedia of RL Players. I did make a start cross-referencing my list with the RL Project, but didn't get very far. Anyway, the earlier posts were at www.mightybears.com/viewtopic.php?t=2753.
