Your Say

John says: With the new "chip and chase" rule wouldn't you like to see another centre like Barry Rushworth? He often turned defending players inside out kicking over their heads and regaining the ball. (12/02/2011)

darryll cullen says: "Bowser" accompanied me to "Westy Jenkin's sports store to buy a basketball when I was a young bloke,he was an overall quality sportsman and a quality bloke.
I really enjoyed following his career in RL and he deserved to be inducted into the Parramatta rugby league hall of fame. (19/01/2012)

noel says: Barry,

The Royal Hotel that you operate is the best. Congratulation, and I may drop in there for a beer soon. (19/04/2012)

John says: I can remember how Barry would punt over the head of a would-be tackler then run past him and regather the ball before he could turn around. A quality centre. (09/01/2017)
