Relfy actually came back to us for a little while after he finished up in England in 2004.

He had actually retired but returned to Australia and played a couple of NSW cup games for us. Early thirties and still seemingly pretty fit he had to give it away due to a heart problem being diagnosed. Remember talking to him on the sideline at ANZ and he said he should never have left the Dogs. Played footy in Gloucester with my husband before he landed at the Dogs.Remember him crying when a bad pass cost us a spot in the 1999 GF. Think it was Stuart who threw it?
We were leading 22-18 with 11 minutes left. Ricky Stuart put a kick through & Matt Geyer scored after a long run to put them in front. It was a premiership missed because of 1 kick.

Chiso you still alive old dog
Yep not much happening in the NRL world so I am going through some old tapes. I am half way through 2001 at the moment. We seemed to get big leads & then lose or draw (twice). There was an interview after the game where we won & Folkes was interviewed by Turvy. Turvy said "you've had 2 losses & a draw (in the previous 3 weeks) - congratulations!" The look on Folkes' face was funny.

Henry Tatana.....played for Canterbury 1972-1974. He would have been my guess.

It's between pages 57 and 58 - the most amount of plodders we've ever had.

Wasn't Willie Talau there before dymock came ?
No, Talau was found by the club playing park footy in Sydney in 97 or 98 and brought him over.
Dymock's first year with the dogs was in 1993.
