Biography

1972 Australian Schoolboy rep had a long career as a centre in Dapto, representing Country and I’warra against Great Britain in 1977 before joining Newtown in the late 1970s. Hetherington played in the club’s 1981 grand final loss to P’matta (scoring a try) but joined the newly formed I’warra Steelers the following year. In 1984 he became the club's first State of Origin player when he was chosen as a reserve and was named I’warra player of the year in that season. Hetherington played in one further match for NSW, in 1986, before his retirement at the end of the 1988 season.
