Another great day at the 2019 WARL Past Players and Supporters Re-union

Thank you to everyone who came down to Swan Yacht on Saturday. What a fantastic day it was!
Congratulations to Laurie Ord from North beach who was inducted into the NRL WA Hall of Fame in recognition of the enormous amounts of hours and work that he has provided the North beach club and the WA State teams over 30+ years. Well done Laurie!!
Thank you also to the Allen family from the Fremantle rugby league club and in particular Tanaya, who joined us to accept the induction of her grandfather, Ken Allen into the NRL WA Hall of Fame.
Ken’s induction was in recognition for his contributions in making WA Rugby League what it is today over a lifetime of involvement. Although Ken has been gone for sometime now, he remains a true Pioneer of our game and his legacy remains strong within our community still.
Well done to all of the volunteers on the day… great job guys.
Thanks again to Shark Sports and NRLWA for your support. Amazing organisations who help us out every year!
Can’t wait for next year! bring on 2020!!! 👍🍻🍾

Bob Granville – Hall of Famer 1996

Know your WA Rugby League True Blue – Bob Granville senior debut at home for his beloved State in 1964 as a 17 year old centre was against France after an impressive Colts tour and a WA senior State game at Woomera against South Australia. By the time he fronted up for the Grand final in 1968 as the 1968 Brice Trophy winner Bob had played against South Australia, Victoria, and Northern Territory, St George and Illawarra in just about every position in the backline from halfback to fullback. 1968 was to be a stellar year for the local WA junior as it ended the season with a 13-11 Grand Final win for his team Victoria Park over a talented Applecross side who had won the last 4 Grand Finals. By 1970 when Victoria Park was back in the Grand final again Bob had toured NSW with the State team, played Northern territory 3 times with one of those games on the Sydney Cricket ground as curtain raiser to the Australia vs England match and fronted up against Balmain at Belmont Oval. In 1971 Bob took over the coaching reins at Victoria Park at 24 years of age and was to play for Perth City over the next few years. Bob Granville was a humble man from all accounts and served his state and club well. Bob is a Life member of the Bulldogs and Hall of Fame member. We salute a WARL True Blue.
