Biography

Former Wests forward, a highly consistent second rower, represented NSW in 1967 while playing for the Collegians Club in the I’warra competition. Costello toured with the Australian team in NZ in 1969, appearing in one Test. Canterbury won the race for his signature in 1970 and Costello was called into the Ashes-deciding Third Test against Great Britain. He later made Australia's World Cup squad that year and backed up with another tour to NZ in 1971.

Your Say

craig hobbs says: Hi Allan, it was a honnor to play with ron at shellharbour group 7 1979, even thow he was well and truly at the end of his caree, just his presense at training or on the feild was a inspuration to me and the rest of the team. My farther John who played with manly in the 50's, alway's said to me, listen and look to what he has to offer he was a marvelous high working player in illawarra & canterbury. 'he also organised a great end of season trip too'! hope he is well. (11/07/2012)
