      Thieves steal prized grand final ring in home robbery
      February 12, 2016 4:17pm
      Jon GeddesManly Daily

      SEA Eagles legend and former coach Geoff Toovey has made an impassioned appeal for the return of his 1996 NRL premiership ring after it was stolen during a break-in at his Narrabeen home on Thursday.

      The thief or thieves got away with jewellery, watches, earrings and rings belonging to Toovey, his daughter Georgia and a friend.

      Toovey’s pushbike was taken from his garage and used to make a getaway after the robbery, which occurred sometime between 11am and 12.30pm. But the item that was most valuable to Toovey was the ring that he received after leading the Sea Eagles to their 20-8 grand final win over St George.

      He also received the Clive Churchill Medal as man of the match in that game, which was played in front of 40,985 fans at the Sydney Football Stadium.

      While police said the ring had enormous sentimental value for Toovey, it has no monetary value because it cannot be sold.

      “It’s not worth anything to anyone else, what are they going to do with it?” Toovey asked. “That is thing I really want back.”

      [​IMG]
      The ring is gold, featuring the words Optus Cup 1996 with the famous image of the gladiators Norm Provan and Arthur Summons in the middle.

      Police say anyone with the ring can place it in an envelope and post it to Dee Why or Manly police station with no stamp required.

      The robbery was another setback for Toovey, who was replaced as Sea Eagles first grade coach by Trent Barrett as part of the club’s revamp for the 2016 season.

          I tell you what the thieves are lucky Tooves didn't catch them? He would have kicked the absolute pooh out of them.

          This is really terrible. I hope he gets it back. There are some things that are just priceless, I can only imagine this is one.

          Maybe Bob could give Geoff his ring. Or Des.

          It's the least either of them could do.

            2V doesn't need a ring to know he is a Manly legend.

            The prick that stole it deserves a front row seat at Brookie for the opener & the beating any ice addict druggo deserves for robbing people.

            Crime in the Northern Beaches, targeted at 2V... I wonder where Habib the Chief Operating **** was today......

                There's been a bit of a spree lately around here. I know a heap of cars on Ocean St were broken into.

                More bad news for poor Tooves - he must've run over a Chinaman.

                What a lowlife, especially to steal something so sentimental but of no monetary value :mad:

                  If club had any intelligence they would commission a new ring be made for him.

                      News just in: a gentleman of Mediterranean appearance is helping NSW Police with their enquiries into the recent burglary of former Sea Eagles' coach Geoff Toovey's Narrabeen home.

                      Police suspicions were raised when they spotted the man pushing a bicycle up Wakehurst Parkway at Oxford Falls. Both tyres had blown and the bike's frame was structurally damaged as a result of the excessive weight the bike had struggled to support.

                      Nor could he explain why the contents of his backpack included jewellery and various other items.

                      The investigation continues.
