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 she's turning cold, at fifteen years old,
Taken too much slow, minds gone out to sea on the P&O,
Don't know what to do, rotten shade of blue,
Another case of "stupid is as stupid does..."

Cuando llegue el día, y estoy parado a las puertas del cielo, será Dios pidiendo mi perdón...

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.
