Thanks ALX. This finally ends a circus nothing like anything that I can remember in recent living memory. Our great club has handled itself with dignity and class, very much in stark contrast to certain other players and external parties. Easts forever.
RIP - Mark Harris. A truly great footie player and centre.
Played in the 74 and 75 GF teams.
A damaging centre or winger, Harris played almost 200 games for the Roosters between 1970 and 1979, which included scoring a try in the drought-breaking 1974 grand final win and backed it up with 14 tries in the club's dominant 1975 premiership season.
While I am too young to have seen Mark play, he was one of my father's favourite players in that golden 1970's era. Cancer is a terrible thing and is impacting on people far and wide. Everyone these days would have either a direct or indirect experience with cancer, and more needs to be done to deal with this horrendous disease.
I wish his immediate family, and extended Easts 'family', all the very best at this difficult time.
