My best wishes to Graham and Leah and all the kids at this hard time. Sending lots of prayers to you for a successful heart operation. I’ll be keeping in close contact with the girls to see how your doing. Big hugs we are here if you need us xxx

Goes without saying I’ll be there for both gigs. There’ll be laughter and tears no doubt. Such a great man on and off the field. He’ll get through this, the same way he played....no holes barred, get out of my way, I’m coming through!

Nice to see Bing Pringle involved as the MC, plus Turvey helping out. Bing and Wombat were nextdoor neighbours at Cromer many years ago. There was a story in the paper prior to the Balmain-Manly semi in '77, with the two of them exchanging pleasantries across the fence.

When Pringle's career at Balmain ended with the rise of Wayne Pearce, there was a story about that some of the senior Manly players approached Arko about signing him up for Manly. Sadly nothing came of it.

Bing is a lovely bloke.. knew him well from the South Tweed Koala’s days...

I’ll hopefully drop in and see Graham tomorrow: I have an exceptional piece of his memorabilia that he gave me a very long time ago that I hope will fetch a pretty penny when auctioned off!!

My love and prayers for this great guy. He brought me so much happiness in my youth. Never met him except patting him on the back walking off Brookie one arvo. Thanks to some great men helping with this appeal including our stellar former players. Special thanks and best wishes to Neil Pringle helping his mate. Neil has suffered a sad loss in recent years and is is a testimony to his character that he is selflessly giving to help others.

Hope it all goes well for the Wombat.

It would be simpler to set up a GoFundMe page.
Then Media could post link and lots more people could get involved :inlove:

Steve Butler told me that the Wombat will have the operation on the 26th if I can remember rightly . Any one that buys a ticket on line will get it signed by the Wombat .

At this stage we only have Steve Butlers email option which is easy to do as well

I had the number 1 on the back of my Manly jersey when I was a kid in the 70s. Wombat is my all-time favourite player. Hope all goes well with the surgery.
