Bob Sullivan's family tree designated that he was destined to play for Norths and Australia. Both his father, Con Sullivan, and uncle, Sid Deane, played Tests for Australia, and Bob Sullivan followed in their footsteps in 1954. The Norths pivot was called into the Australian side for the Second Test against Great Britain in 1954 but this was to be his only Test appearance.
