When we lived in Sydney back in the 60’s we followed The Dragons – that was in the days when Johnny Raper , brothers Norm & Peter Provan and Brian Messiter were playing along with other greats. Enjoyed many a game cheering St George on. Reg Gasnier passed away the day before his 75th Birthday 11/5/14 https://www.facebook.com/NRLDragons/
RIP PUFF – SAFE JOURNEY .. Maureen Clifford © The ScribblyBark Poet
Puff the magic dragon lived by the sea
he wore a coat of red and white and popular was he.
He played with other dragons and the people came from far
to see this mighty Dragon roar, and Puff is still a star.
He’s gone up to another team to play that final game
he’ll never be forgotten by his fans – we know his name
was really Reg, but to us here – we all knew him as Puff.
A mighty footy player who was made of sterner stuff.
This year your birthday celebration is on higher plains
no doubt you’ll share it with your mates up there – so many names
have passed through heavens pearly gates before you hit the road
the reminiscing will go on a long time I suppose.
So raise your glass and drink a toast to Reg – the mighty Puff
A true blue St George Dragon – who never cut up rough.
A legend in his lifetime – a Kangaroo as well
Go gently from this life old Mate and keep on raising hell.
The Team Song
"We are the St George boys,
We had a win today,
We are the boys you know of,
Who show them how to play,
No matter where you be,
The red and white you'll see,
Now aren't we a wonderful credit,
To our locality!"
