    The Hervey Bay "Fighting Whiting" rugby league club.

    I was quite taken with a couple of names from the 1984 Souths team:

    Bronko Djura
    Ziggy Niszczot

    Don't see names like that running around in the NRL anymore

    There was a guy who played for Canberra (I think) whose surname was Lightning. He was a winger too from memory.

    There was another bloke in the 90's called someone Daylight.

    I remember way back in the MWSE forum days when we signed Glenn Innes. ;)

    Kevin Longbottom - played for Souths in the late 80s
    Dane Gagai - Currently with the Knights, must have been teased at school
    Billy Weepu - BIG unit played mainly lower grades with Manly in the 90s
    Alan Tongue - I always wanted see Tongue on Beaver
    Karmichael Hunt - AFL superstar and a real K Hunt
    "The Pleasure Machine" - arguably the best nickname ever
