Biography

Kurri Kurri lock came to Newtown in 1970 and was chosen in Australia's victorious World Cup squad after only six first grade games at lock and an appearance in that year's Endeavour Cup competition (for non-semi-final teams). Sullivan was a non-stop toiler for his club and following Ron Coote's decision to stand down from rep duty in 1972, made his NSW debut before being selected in two Tests against NZ. He scored two tries in Australia's 36-11 win at the SCG before playing in the Second Test in Brisbane. Sullivan made his second World Cup tour at year's end and looked certain to tour with the 1973 Kangaroos but was injured in Newtown's semi-final campaign. He later played in the Newcastle competition in the late 1970s.
