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.

We acknowledge the stories, traditions and living cultures of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples on the lands we meet, gather and play on and that the land area encompassing Henson Park traditionally belonged to the Gadigal people of the Eora nation.
