Dick Poole turns 91.

Another wonderful Newtown Bluebags veteran has had another significant birthday.

The former Bluebags centre Dick Poole, who captain-coached both Newtown and Australia, turned 91 recently.

Dick played with Newtown from 1949 to 1958 and was captain-coach from 1955-1958.

He captain-coached Australia to undefeated victory in the 1957 Rugby League World Cup tournament.

Dick returned to the club as a non-playing coach from 1966 to 1968.

He was named as a centre in Newtown’s Team of the Century in 2008.

The entire Newtown RLFC community sends good wishes to Dick Poole on his 91st birthday.
