An article in the SMH-Friday 21 March 1952

Club May Try Out N.Z. Back

George Martin, one of New Zealand's foremost Rugby Union centres, is likely to try out with North Sydney Rugby League Club this reason.
A 21-year-old commercial artist Martin intends to migrate to Australia.
North Sydney club officials said last night they were most interested and would try him out. Martin is a solidly built three-quarter who has represented Wellington (N.Z.) for the last two years. The Hutt Valley Rugby Union club rates Martin equal to Trevor Allen, who switched to League with a contract to play in England.

George Martin designed the 1954 jersey that we kept until 1968, the black saddled shoulders.I have mentioned this ebfore but he got the idea from the 1953 touring american allstars Rugby league team.
