        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
