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.
