AS I sit here listening to my collection of music from the ?70?s, I can?t help but dwell on Rugby League as it was back in years gone by. Way back when Rugby League was played by men who by and large were amateurs.
I was never brought up with sports at a young age. We migrated into Australia when I was 11 back in 1975, the year the Roosters won back to back premierships. My father was an astute businessman running the family business, my mom didn?t know the difference between Beetson & Beetroot, my sister was still figuring how the world works at a tender age of 2.
