Biography

South African RU winger and goal-kicker extraordinaire shifted from Rugby’s amateur ranks to play for St Helens in 1965. Killeen got a first-hand view of the 1967-68 Kangaroos in England and decided that Australia was the place to play rugby league. Signing with Balmain he established a club record 207 points (9t, 84g, 6fg) during the club's premiership winning season in 1969 - surpassing the great Keith Barnes. Killeen's kicking style - placing the ball upright with an ultra-quick walk-up - was seen to good effect in the Tigers’ shock, 11-2 win over Souths in the infamous 1969 grand final. He saw out his career at Penrith in 1972 before returning to South Africa.
