Biography

Newtown junior, the nephew of former Test half Bob Bugden, spent two seasons playing in the local St George competition. A NSW U'18s rep under coach Jack Gibson in 1977, Geoff Bugden was graded by Newtown in 1978. A surprise winner of the Rothmans Medal in 1980, Bugden suffered a knee injury in a Tooths Cup match against Cronulla the following year and was relegated to the reserve bench for Newtown's grand final loss to P’matta. Bugden joined the Eels in 1982 and played in the club's 21-8 grand final win over Manly. In 1983 he suffered a serious chest injury and at the age of 23, announced his retirement. The decision proved to be premature and Bugden returned two seasons later with his chest heavily strapped, only to break his arm. He returned again, in 1986, and produced a courageous display in P’matta's 4-2 grand final win over C’bury. Injuries affected the remainder of Bugden's career before his eventual retirement in 1989.
