Your Say

Polysci says: Unusual for a full-back in an era in which full-backs tended to take the long punts downfield, Smithies did NOT have a strong boot on him. (07/05/2012)

Graeme says: I think Bob played for Wollongong Teachers' College Rugby Union First Grade side, in 1965. (25/09/2012)

bernie bickerdike says: bob,s genuine speed in the return of the kick caught everyone in this era off guard (21/10/2012)
