Your Say

Polysci says: Australian Rugby League's only priest-player!
Father John Cootes was involved in one of the most notorious football incidents - in a selection trial for the 1967 Kangaroo tour, he was coat-hangered by the bruising enforcer Peter Dimond. Diamond was sent off and consequently missed selection for the tour and never represented Australia again.

John Cootes, after leaving the priesthood, was later a successful Sydney furniture retailer. (07/05/2012)
