Jharal Yow Yeh


Arthur Beetson's centre partner at Roma ventured to Balmain with his team-mate in 1966. Yow Yeh played on the wing in the Tigers' grand final loss to St George that year but could not fully adjust to city life. He left Balmain at the end of 1967 and while Beetson went on to greatness, Yow Yeh's life ended tragically in the 1980s.

Anonymous says: I have limited memories from the mid 60?s ,but have memories of Kevin as a very fast running player for the Tigers , my earliest rugby league memories . Kevin & Artie were my favorite players from that era at Leichhardt Oval. Was sad to hear of Kevin?s passing in 1975. (31/05/2014)

BankTeller says: Kevin possessed amazing pace of-the-mark. I well recall a TV add where fullback, Les Johns (C-B), tackled Kevin Yow Yeh (Bal)in a copybook tackle. RIP Kevin (08/05/2015)

Rob Cross says: I remember watching Kevin flying down the wing at Leichhardt Oval as a kid. IF he caught the ball (many a time he was too quick for the pass and fumbled) it was a certain try. The man was like greased lightening and I will never forget how awesome he was as a runner. 40 years later, I met his niece when we worked together and she told me he had passed away, sad news indeed.
