Biography

The third of the famous Mortimer brothers came to C’bury from Inverell in Northern Division. 'Louie' Mortimer was a robust centre who later moved effectively into the forwards at lock. A member of C’bury’s premiership winning sides in 1980 & 1984-85, he toured with the Kangaroos in 1986 and made his only Test appearance in the match against Papua New Guinea on the way to England. In 1988 he moved to Penrith where his experience was used by coaches Ron Willey and Phil Gould to mould a champion team. Mortimer captained Country Origin in 1989 before making his last appearance for NSW. He retired from Sydney football after Penrith's 1990 grand final loss to Canberra and played for Wakefield Trinity in England before succumbing to a serious knee injury.
