Biography

Cronulla coach Arthur Beetson drew much criticism for drafting 16-year-old schoolboy Adam Ritson into first grade in 1993. The giant prop was up to the task, however, and after playing in the club's President's Cup grand final-winning side in 1994, surprisingly found himself at the centre of a tug-of-war between Super League and the ARL. Ritson remained with the ARL and, after commencing his promising rep career with selection for City, joined P’matta in 1996. That year, Ritson was knocked unconscious in a match against Canberra after a high tackle by rival forward John Lomax, and a routine scan discovered a life-threatening cyst in his brain. After 14 operations in an ordeal that almost claimed his life, Ritson recovered his health but his playing career was over.
