Celebrating Frank's 100th Year ...

Football, Family And Faith - A Fortunate Life
Tony Stephens
September 25, 2007

Frank Hyde, 1916-2007


A real champion … Frank Hyde.

Quote:
FRANK HYDE often said he owed everything in his life to rugby league. He also said he would be nothing without his wife, Gaby. And he told The Catholic Weekly: "Everything I have achieved in my life is a direct result of my faith."

Truth lies in all three credits for a fortunate life. Football, family and faith were central to his being. Yet he will be most remembered for his football. He played with distinction and broadcast it with unparalleled success, leading the radio ratings for 30 years.

Hyde grew up in Sydney at a time when league was even more tribal than it is now. Players in Sydney were obliged to turn out for the team representing the suburb where they lived. Clubs used spies to check where players slept. Hyde first played for Newtown, when the family lived in Millers Point, which was Balmain territory. After his address was discovered, Hyde moved to Balmain. When the family moved to Lane Cove, Hyde had to play for North Sydney.

The game has changed but Hyde remained loyal to it, afficionado rather than partisan. He watched Manly beat the North Queensland Cowboys in the preliminary final on Saturday before lapsing into unconsciousness on Sunday, his radio tuned to the football. He died early yesterday, aged 91, not having heard that North Sydney had won through to the premier league grand final.

Frank Hyde was the youngest of seven boys born to James Hyde, a coal lumper from County Cork, and Mary McKenna. Frank was 14 when his father died. He left school and worked as a bottle washer, then with the post office. He was playing cricket when asked to try out for the Newtown league team.

Hyde had made a name for himself when the Balmain spy found him. He captained Balmain and was chosen for NSW. Balmain beat Souths 33-4 in the 1939 premiership final, the day before World War II broke out, ending his chances of touring Britain with the Australian team. He led Norths against Newtown in the 1943 final, losing 34-7 in front of 60,922 people.

He became a referee but, in 1953, took Reg Grundy's sports broadcasting job. His first broadcast was a boxing match between George Barnes and George Kapeen and he covered the Melbourne Olympics before settling in to league. Radio 2SM bosses sent him for elocution lessons at the ABC but Bryson Taylor advised him to stick with his "good Australian voice". Hyde's calls, sharp and accurate, were made from the sideline in all kinds of weather. At the SCG, he sat at a table on the field, close enough to feel the thudding of the players' boots. His gravel-voiced catchcry when describing a kick for goal - "It's long enough, it's high enough … it's straight between the posts" - became famous. After the game he would often visit the Matthew Talbot Hostel, to arrange beds for the night or help residents wash.

By 1983 2SM had become a Top 40 music station. Hyde went to 2UE for two years before retiring. He had also become a television personality, partly through noisy arguments with Ron Casey on Channel Nine's World of Sport , and a singer, with three albums and his version of Danny Boy reaching No. 7 on pop music charts.

Frank Hyde was an MBE and a papal knight. He received an OAM and was inducted into radio's Hall of Fame last year. His wife of 64 years, Gaby, died this year. He is survived by six children and six grandchildren.


Quote:
Oh Danny boy, the pipes, the pipes are calling;
From glen to glen, and down the mountain side
The summer's gone, and all the flowers are dying;
'Tis you, 'tis you must go and I must bide
But come ye back when summer's in the meadow;
Or when the valley's hushed and white with snow
'Tis I'll be here in sunshine or in shadow;
Oh Danny boy, oh Danny boy, I love you so . . .

A little bit of info on Logan Houghton.

Houghton's Emerged As One Of Local League's Best
Steele Taylor
12th Jun 2016



Quote:
RUGBY LEAGUE: Logan Houghton's relishing his time with Kawana and is doing his best to forge his way back into the Sunshine Coast Falcons' line-up.

The 21-year-old prop has rapidly emerged as one of the top players in Rugby League Sunshine Coast's division one with the Dolphins, barging his way into the Central Crows set-up and then forcing his way into the Queensland Rangers squad with Maroochydore's Jason Wardrop.

The former Melbourne Storm under-20 forward is enjoying his time in the local top tier.

"I feel like I've stepped up a lot (this year) and I've had a lot of fun and had a lot of new experiences with the older blokes," he said.

"It's been really good, coming from under-20s and going into the games with and against men."

But as much as he's thriving with the Caloundra RSL Cup defending premier, Houghton is eager to lace-up for the Falcons in the state league.

He's on the roster there and has played two matches in the Intrust Super Cup this season.

"I'm trying to play my best to get back into the side," he said.

"I'm looking to get my fitness up and try and play a lot of minutes. I'm trying to get my hands on the ball a lot and just run hard and tackle hard."

Houghton is getting significant game time with the Dolphins but he'd like to continue improving his endurance and efficiency.

"Sixty (minutes) for Kawana is not bad but Q Cup is a lot faster," he said.

The Dolphins sent a shudder through the local competition on Saturday night, when the second-placed side crushed third-placed Caloundra 40-18.

"There was really good commitment from everyone," Houghton said.

"We're struggling with numbers and we're getting under-18s and reserves to come help us out and they are doing a brilliant job.

"Our structure has got a lot better. We're working on our second phase plays and our attacking has been really good.

"We seemed to get them up around the edges and we were punching through and our backs were awesome."

Houghton hails from New Zealand and made the switch from rugby union to rugby league when he was 13 before moving to Melbourne.

History Celebrated Through Frank Hyde Shield
Matt Buxton
Fri 15th July, 10:30AM
The celebration of two heritage Rugby League clubs possessing extremely rich histories will commence this Sunday afternoon, when the North Sydney Bears host the Newtown Jets in the first leg of their annual clash for the Frank Hyde Shield.

Quote:
Frank Hyde played two seasons for the Jets in 1936-37, and two more seasons for the Bears in 1942-43, as well as playing for the Balmain Tigers in between and representing NSW on five occasions.

He then enjoyed a highly successful media career as a radio broadcaster, but his deep connection with the two clubs that will run out at North Sydney Oval this weekend was topped off in his final year, when Hyde represented the Bears as the captain/coach of the 1943 NSWRL premiership losing side that went down to his former club, the Jets.

There is a piece of Frank Hyde history that is shared in the walls of both the Jets' and the Bears' organisations, and North Sydney coach, Ben Gardiner, hopes to see a big crowd at North Sydney Oval this Sunday at 3pm to witness the rich past of Rugby League celebrated at a heritage ground between two heritage clubs.

"This game against Newtown for North Sydney is an important game because firstly its two heritage clubs coming up against each other, both clubs that have been through fairly hard times and fought their way back to have identities within the NSWRL competitions," Gardiner told NSWRL.com.au.

"Not only do we come up against each other, there's a reason for us to do it, and that's the great Frank Hyde. He had a relationship with both clubs, and was one of the great commentators of all time.

"He did a lot of other things in Rugby League as well, so we see this game, as well as the game in a few weeks time as a great opportunity to represent Frank and what he did for the game and what he did for both heritage clubs."

The Frank Hyde Shield not only adds to the long rivalry of the Bears and the Jets, but it is also a celebration of both clubs.

If that wasn't enough, the Bears have just released a heritage jersey that they will wear this weekend for the game, a jersey that will be on sale to the public at the ground on Sunday afternoon.

"It's great that both Newtown and North Sydney can support each other in this particular game for the Frank Hyde Shield, the second leg is in in Round 23 over at Henson Park so both teams get an opportunity at a home game," Gardiner said.

"We have got a bit of a special uniform for the week, so it's a pretty important week for us as a club in terms of our organisation."

Frank Hyde was made a Member of Order of the British Empire in 1974, and a Medal of the Order Of Australia (OAM) in 1990 for his services to Rugby League.

His catch phrase while commentating was "it's long enough, it's high enough and its straight between the posts" is a part of Rugby League folklore, and he was awarded the Australian Sports Medal in 2000 for his contribution to the game.

He passed away aged 91 on 24 September 2007, as a true Rugby League icon.

The North Sydney Bears have a catch-cry, which is "respect the past, build the future," which is exactly the aim with these kind of events, and Gardiner believes the importance of the NSWRL and fans staying in touch with these heritage clubs is imperative.

"Not only is it important for us as a club, but I think it's really important for NSWRL in general in that we're a competition that is NSW wide, but a lot of it is in the city areas, and I think it's important just to make sure that people within Rugby League understand what's gone before them," Gardiner said.

"Hopefully we can get a big crowd there on Sunday afternoon at 3pm to really support both clubs which are heritage clubs and are two clubs that need a lot of support.

"It's membership, it's coming to the ground and buying your drink and sausage roll or whatever it is that you buy, they're the important things that we need to make sure both clubs can keep above water and keep moving forward."

The Bears will go into the match having endured three tight and frustrating losses recently, and are hoping to turn it around in order to get back the Frank Hyde Shield.

Gardiner says that his side are learning from those experiences, and will try and keep things simple heading into the important clash.

"It's not like its back to the drawing board or anything like that, but this week will be about holding onto the ball, being a little bit better at the start of the game doing the little things right," Gardiner said.

"I think we'll be in with a really good chance this match but in saying that, Newtown is a really good side, they've been one of the sides that have been lucky enough to keep a similar side on the paddock for most of the weeks of the competition.

"They've had a few quiet weeks, but they have had guys to up to NRL and back down from NRL so I would be thinking this week they would have quite a few of those guys back into their team, they'll be back to near full-strength and that's a challenge that we like at North Sydney, we'll have a red hot crack."

The Frank Hyde Shield is a celebration for two clubs with rich histories within Rugby League, and the present players representing the past will be on show at North Sydney Oval, this Sunday at 3pm.

North Sydney Bears Roar Again

Quote:
Former Bears prop Don McKinnon will present North Sydney players with their new heritage jerseys before Sunday's Frank Hyde Shield series against Newtown.

Just as they did way back in 1908, the foundation clubs will go at it again at North Sydney Oval at 3pm. McKinnon, who represented the Bears on 183 occasions, will be one of many familiar faces overseeing proceedings.

I'm listening to the call on Steele Sports Radio (www.steelesports.com.au). There's a slight delay on the call as some of the scores are coming through on Twitter before the commentators call them. Sounds like a great game, enhanced by the fact that the Bears are up 14-6 at half time.

A big crowd at North Sydney Oval for the Frank Hyde Shield.

No real changes to the NS team - Logan Houghton didn't make the final 17 and Riley Travers is playing in jersey no. 18. In the first half, I've heard all 13 starting players called, plus Jokatama Dokonivalu and Jamel Hunt from the bench. The team sheet from NS's twitter account:



The commentators say that even as North Sydney ran onto the ground, they looked like they'd turned up to play. All the early momentum was with Norths - two converted tries on the back of unforced errors from the Jets. However, after the early dominance, Newtown was helped back into the game after the Bears started giving away stupid penalties, including one which saw a player put in the bin for taking too long in the tackle. But NS's defence held and the game seemed pretty even, with end-to-end play. Ten minutes before half time, NS got a penalty right in front of the posts for a high tackle; we went for the two points which gave us a 14-0 lead. I was pleased we went for goal - we've thrown away points in previous games going for a try that never came off.

Half Time
North Sydney Bears 14 (Piki Rogers, Latrell Robinson tries; Eli Levido 3 goals from 3 attempts) lead
Newtown Jets 6 (1 try; 1 goal from 1 attempt)

What a woeful second half from the Bears and what a turnaround from the opening stages - 14-0 up only to lose 32-14. A shocking effort. Too many stupid penalties conceded (a feature of our games this year), too many turnovers in possession.
