Biography

Kevin O’Brien’s utility value in the backline earned him a place on the 1956-57 Kangaroo tour. The St George winger covered fullback, centre and five-eighth at various stages of his NSW debut that year and played in the centres in St George’s 18-12 grand final win over Balmain. On tour in England and France O’Brien played in 11 matches but did not appear in a Test match.
