Biography

The son of Manly record-breaker Ron Rowles progressed from a Country RU rep from Wollongong to the NSW and Australian Test team in 1972. A brilliant goal-kicker and a tactically sound pivot, Rowles played against Fiji in Suva, and Wales on the 1973-74 Wallaby tour but broke his leg in a car accident which left him in plaster for almost eight months. Rowles was playing RU with Gordon in 1975 when he switched codes to play for Manly but spent the following season at Thirroul on the South Coast. In 1977 he signed with Wests and set a club record 229pts (8t, 101g, 3fg) when the Magpies won the minor premiership the following year. After one season with Newtown, he saw out the final year of his career back with Wests.
