Biography

A member of Norths' champion backline during the club's only premiership era (1921-22), Herman Peters was one of five clubmates who toured with the 1921-22 Kangaroos. The Norths centre played in only four matches on tour but returned to score a try in the club's 33-5 win over Glebe in 1922 final. When the club's star players left, Peters remained to captain Norths in the 1920s. He became a national selector after his retirement and was a member of the selection panel that was involved in the controversial sacking of Australian captain Len Smith before the 1948-49 Kangaroo Tour. Peters was known as the ‘grand old man’ of the Norths club and was a staunch supporter right up until his death at age 89 in 1989.
