Biography

Tough Newtown prop was involved in two violent clashes during the 1981 season. The first was in the State of Origin match when Bowden was sin-binned with Queensland's Rod Morris after an all-in brawl. The second occasion cost him a place in the grand final when he was sent off with Manly's Terry Randall in the major semi-final after one of the ugliest brawls seen at the SCG.

Your Say

Anonymous says: Sorry to correct you. Terry Randall was sent off along with Bowden after kicking him in the head. Broadhurst played on with bad facial injuries. (05/03/2012)
