Almanac Rugby League – Tom Brock Lecture 2015

Hi All,

The 17th Annual Tom Brock Lecture takes place at 99 on York on Wednesday 16 September, 6:00 for 6:30pm.

Our lecturer this year is Dr Ross McMullin. The topic is ‘Retrieving Ted Larkin (1880-1915): Outstanding Footballer, Acclaimed Organizer, Original Anzac’.

In the year that commemorates the centenary of the Gallipoli landing, it is appropriate that we examine the life of an Anzac who played such a significant role in the development of rugby league football in Australia.

RSVP for catering purposes by 1 September. MORE DETAILS HERE

We hope to see you there!

Best regards,

Andy Carr
