Newtown RLFC legend Dick Poole is 91 years old today
The Newtown Jets would like to wish Team of the Century member, Dick Poole, a happy 91st birthday.
Dick played 133 first grade games for Newtown between 1950 and 1958, represented Australia in 10 Test matches and three World Cup games, and captain-coached his country to victory during the 1957 World Cup tournament.
He was also captain-coach of Newtown from 1955 to 1958, and was the club’s non-playing coach from 1966 to 1968.
He also played for Western Suburbs between 1959 and 1961.
Newtown Jets respect and honour the Traditional Custodians of the Land and pay our respects to their Elders past and present. 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.
