TO a boy growing up in Brisbane in the 1950/60s George Lovejoy was the voice of Rugby League. My father and I listened to his Friday night preview at 6 p.m. on 4BH and hurried home from the Saturday game, whether it be a club game, Bulimba Cup, representative trial, Interstate or Test, to listen to his 6 o'clock review. (When I was old enough to own a transistor, I listened to his call during the game). The same scene was repeated on Sunday after a local club game.
