Steve Norton

Career Stats & Summary

Biography

Great Britain Test forward came to Manly from Castleford as a replacement for the fiery Mal Reilly. Norton not only physically resembled Reilly but was also a great ball-player - minus Reilly's notoriety for mixing it with the opposition. Norton played in the Sea Eagles' 1976 grand final win over P’matta.
