Correct pronunciation "Mar-khee" from memory.. Was always called "Mar-kett" in early days. Must have drove his family nuts I'd think..
Petero "Thee-fo-ni-there-fa"....... I think? Any experts in polynesian names can confirm?
Other mis-pronounced player names??
Ricky Walpole (the Moose in his twilight years.. no one had the balls to correct him and he kept at it for ages..).
I vaguely remember him.
Sounds like a Norwegian piano accordion player.
Shane Walker (born 1971, NOT Walker's on brother)... played for St. George Dragons, Eastern Suburbs, Balmain Tigers, Wests Tigers & Melbourne Storm.
Wade 'Paddles' Fenton
Lee Te Maari
