Your Say

Stewart Skinner says: Played against Allan in my first ever first grade game for Maitland in 1976 as a 19 year old fullback. I made the mistake of taking the ball into the forwards, he hit me horizontal I could not believe a human could be that hard , he was made of granite. Had the pleasure of playing with him for Maquarie United in 1977, one tough man. (12/05/2016)
