Biography

Former Glebe RU five-eighth captained the amateur club to the Metropolitan premiership in 1907. Conlon changed to the professional code in 1908 while champion playmakers Chris McKivat and Freddy Woods remained with the Glebe RU in order to play in the inaugural Wallabies Tour at the end of the year. Conlon represented NSW in two matches in 1908 before touring with the pioneer 1908-09 Kangaroos. Conlon made his Test debut in the Second Test against England but injury limited him to just 6 other minor tour matches. Conlon was selected in the centres in two Tests against NZ the following year and after his retirement as a player he moved to Queensland and was a selector for the Brisbane RL.

Your Say

michael conlon says: Albert Richard Conlon was my grandfather.Our family used to visit pop every couple of weeks at the chook farm at Tingalpa. Pop never spoke much about football,but praised players like Dally Messenger and Sandy Pearce.Pop died in July 1956 and is buried at Hemant cemetery. I remember one of the pall beares on my side of the coffin was the Australian captain Duncan Hall I am very proud of my Pop (18/10/2017)
