Blacktown junior who made his first grade debut as a replacement late in the 1985 season.

It would be his solitary appearance that year but the pint-sized, whole hearted fullback would be the club’s first choice custodian over the 1986 and 1987 seasons, making 37 appearances.

He would only make 3 first grade appearances in 1988, leaving the club at season’s end having made 104 grade appearances for Penrith over 5 seasons.

Sadly, he passed away in 1996 from cancer aged just 31.
