RIP

The historic milestone and turning point of our game was changing the national teams attitude from containment to offence without fear.

Frank was responsible for this change and we’ve never looked back. Great man.

Rip I read about him in Jonny warren’s book 

haha, I love this and its showing my bloody age haha.....
TBH he's a Legend of our game......
His St George coaching days were epic as well as mentioned re SMH and unearthed some great players we all came to see in the Roos squads as young blokes.....
He brought passion and tactics and his personality was infectious and could sting like a bee as well !
RIP Frank !


Love Football

I vividly recall one headline after a game.

”Arok runs Amok”

Classic and true.
