I'll kick it off;
"Skippy" O'Donnell went to my school, Marist Brothers Greymouth (as did Butch Coll).
How about "Moose"?
(Hint - prop originally from the coast but played his senior football in Wellington - a kiwi from 1966 to 1971).
Incidentally, everyone on the coast had a nickname - if you didn't, you were a bit weird (ie a nerd in today's lingo).
Sticks - Another clue - He is now a commentator with Allen Mac, his brother was a fullback and his name starts with O.
As for Inky ... John Bray? (I'm cheating by using one of Bernie Wood's NZRL annuals). Why did the NZRL ever stop these books??
"The Kiwis 1907 - 2006: 100 years of international rugby league" by John Coffee and Bernie Wood.
This is the title of the of the new book to be released next year. It contains the names of all our Kiwis, 728 of them as at the start of 2006, with over 400 pages and over 300 photos it promises to be a very good book.
Anyone interested will need to send a $10 (with the balance being $38) deposit to Bernie Wood (message me for his address)
I'll be getting my copy as a true Kiwi fan.
GH Turner - who ever that may be?
I was sure that Bernie got 'shafted' by the NZRL who wanted to bring our their own annuals. Please ask him. A few years ago I got some back copies for him that went back to the 70s, 80s as well as some from the 90s.
I'll swing this chair around and have a look at Bernie's Annuals that I have:
Great reading and good for referencing once in a while. I'd love to fill the gaps.
