Biography

Outstanding winger in the period immediately after the war scored a club record 28 tries for Balmain during the 1947 season. Lulham came to the club from Newcastle and was very fast off the mark with a deceptive step off either foot. He played in all four matches for NSW in 1947 and in the Balmain side that defeated C’bury in the grand final. A 1948-49 Kangaroo tourist, Lulham made his debut in the Third Test against Great Britain before going on to play two Tests against France. Lulham, who became involved in a celebrated domestic court case at the height of his career, passed away in 1986.

Your Say

Bob Melmouth says: I've just recently learned Bobby Lulham was my half brother due to an affair Involving my mother and Bobby's father. Just sorry I never got to meet him, his life was certainly colorful in regards to his football and personal life. (24/08/2011)
