The memory of the late Laurie Nicholls will be remembered at a special dedication ceremony to take place at Leichhardt Oval on Saturday evening 9th August 2003.
Wests Tigers play South Sydney in the battle of the traditional foes in the NRL Match of the Round and Directors of Balmain feel there is no more appropriate time to honour one of the club?s favourite sons, particularly as it coincides with the annual players reunion.
The dedication of a plaque in his name will take place during half time in the Premier league match between Balmain and South Sydney. The plaque will then be fixed in the player?s tunnel, where Laurie spent much of his time encouraging the players.
Representatives of the media and all Tigers Rugby League supporters are invited to the dedication.
For those who cannot attend the game on Saturday night, the plaque will also form part of the Balmain Tigers Football Club memorabilia display. The display, to be held at the Balmain Leagues Club, will open on Friday evening 8th August at 7pm and conclude at 10pm on Saturday 9th August.Like
