Sunday at Kogarah
St George Dragons legend, Billy Smith will be just inside the General Admission Entrance of Oki Jubilee Stadium this Sunday (25th July) from 2:00pm to 3:00pm to sign copies of his book, A SAINT FROM HEAD TO TOE.
A centre who turned into a champion half back, Billy Smith made 233 first grade appearances with St George from 1963-77, scoring 30 tries, 24 goals and 23 field goals for a total of 161 points. In all, he played 296 all grade matches which remains as a club record.
He represented NSW 15 times between 1964-1973 and played 18 Tests for Australia between 1964-1970. He played in six grand finals 1963-66, 1971 & 1975, winning on four occasions. He twice won the Harry Sunderland Medal for best Australian player in an Ashes series.
A player who never took a backward step, Billy Smith suffered a smashed jaw in 1969 before coming back to captain Australia in the 1970 World Cup.
Copies of the book, A SAINT FROM HEAD TO TOE, can be purchased from either the front desk of St George League's Club or the merchandise stores at OKI Kogarah Jubilee.
