Biography

The son of former Country forward Jack James, Brian James was a GPS star with Newington College before playing RU for St George. A professional sprinter, he joined the St George Dragons in 1962 but battled for recognition in the champion club and moved to Souths in 1966. James was on the wing in the Rabbitohs' 1967 grand final win over C’bury and, after overcoming a serious illness, broke into rep football in 1968. Following two games for NSW he was called into Australia's victorious World Cup squad. James was again on the flank in Souths' 13-9 grand final win over Manly in 1969 but was unlucky not to have been awarded a try in the club's 1969 grand final loss to Balmain when he was controversially ruled to have hit the corner-post.
