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.
