Without that money we wouldnt have survived and the Wests Tigers wouldn't be today.
Thank goodness for Rick Wayde ... The only reason the "Wests" are still in the Wests Tigers.

Some top bands in that list don't see the likes of them now, I think Rick Wade is still involvedI read his name as either a board member with Wests Leagues or something similar from memory.

Yes, I am an old Auburn boy from back in the fifties and sixties and I knew Copper (or Cobber?)Davis, who was a redhead. I remember a few of us looked to be in trouble with a bunch of guys in the late fifies (don't remember where in Sydney) and Copper pulled up in his Holden Ute, pulled out the pick handle he carried under the seat and got us out of trouble.
My memory is poor these days, but I think Copper played juniors with Auburn United or Lidcombe United in the fifties.

Rod passed away about 5 years ago, a funny life, he was my rear backyard neighbour and his folks and mine from same neck of woods, knew each other for decades.

Whereabouts in Auburn MM - I lived in Harrow Rd in the 50s before my family moved to Sheffield St - lived there until the late 70s.

Small world.

In saying that, if you were ever going bump into people from that neck of the woods it would be on Wests forum.
