The Newtown RLFC regrets to announce the passing of Dave Barsley, who played first grade with Newtown as a fullback and winger from 1969 to 1971. He had previously played with Western Suburbs from 1959 to 1968, with the exception of 1964 when he had a season in the country and represented NSW Country Firsts. The Newtown RLFC extends sincere condolences to Dave’s family.
