Biography

Ill-fated prop was a member of Balmain's 1964 grand final side that lost to St George, 11-6. Piper also played for the Tigers in 1966 when they became the first Sydney club side to defeat a touring Great Britain team before shifting to the Panthers. A double try-scorer in the club's first title success, the Wills Pre-Season final in 1968, he lost his life after suffering head injuries in an incident outside a Balmain night-club on September 22 that year.
