Joe Grainey – RIP

The Newtown RLFC regrets to announce the recent passing of former player, Joe Grainey. Joe was a product of the Lancashire rugby league club Leigh and played with Newtown from 1964 to 1966. He was a member of the famous Newtown Bluebags team that made the semi-finals in 1966 and had been the competition leaders in the first half of that season. Joe then moved to the NSW Far North Coast and captain-coached Mullumbimby to a Group 18 premiership in the late 1960s.

The club extends sincere condolences to Joe’s wife Pauline and members of the extended Grainey family.
