Dev Dines RIP

Post by GoldXR50Leroy » Wed 07 Mar, 2018 7:48 pm

Noticed a funeral announcement in Yesterday's Telegraph for Devitt Dines, it was surrounded by the Magpies emblems, so I thought I should look up his playing history.
Dev played 58 games for Wests between 1950 & 1957 and was a try scorer in Wests win over Souths in the 1954 Grand Final, Dev passed away in Tamworth ast Friday aged 87 and his funeral was today.

Fly high old bird.
And the sky is filled with light, can you see it?
And the black is really white, if you believe it.
And the longing that you feel, you know none of this is real;
You will find a better place, in this twilight...

Fuerza en la adversidad.

Very sad. Wouldn't be many of the 54 team left.

Well before my time, but an old mate used to speak fondly of Dines & Leo Trevena. RIP.
