Vale Tommy Raudonikis.

NSWRL and ARL legend and one of the NSW Blues primary antagonists in the early days of State of Origin.

The mastermind behind the now infamous Cattle Dog call which is now ensconced in Origin folklore.

Played hard lived hard did it hard and a poster boy for the downtrodden playing for the likes of Wests Maggies, and the Newtown Jets.

RIP a true character of Rugby League.

I watched a fair bit of league following the Tigers when they were still Balmain in the late 80s when I lived in Rozelle for a few years. Don't watch any league now but the game had some great characters back then, including Tommy who I think was coaching Wests for part of that time.

And on the prospect of a Peacock comeback asked "Can a soufflé rise twice?"
Peacock wasn’t my cup of tea. Born and raised into the Melbourne privilege set, annointed into Menzies’ seat in his late 20s.
However I have little doubt that Australia would be better if he had led the Liberals in the 90s and later rather than Howard.

Yeah, tend to agree with all of that.
