Maybe this question has put Madunit in a very very deep thought process?...Shadow...
You picked one guy who I've written an article about.
Also served in WWI
His first game of Rugby League was playing for QLD. He hadn't played club football at the time.
Furthermore, his treatment by the Metropolitan Rugby Union in 1904 was a pivotal moment in the birth of Rugby League.
He played in an expat competition set up in South Africa in 1905. He played in the side that won the Grand Final in that competition too.
He also played Rugby Union in NZ where he was regarded as the best RU Forward in the world. He was lured to RL in 1908. He played for Queensland, two games for Newcastle and then was selected to play for Australia on the Kangaroo Tour. He was the first of the Kangaroo's to be approached by an English side when Huddersfield signed him at the end of the tour.
Sorry, I don't get on the forum til late on Thursday's through to Sunday's
That was a very obscure question from Shadow.
Only a real student of the game would be onto that.
Congrats to Shadow for setting you the task but it seems you knew the answer instantly.
I really had no idea & could only connect the code-hoppers of recent times.
I did know,however,that Hunt & Folau had not played against Ireland in the hybrid internationals.
Folau was my first guess as well. Don't really know many code hoppers of the game. Doesn't help being a lot younger either.
It just hit me why Shadow posed that question---I remember now---both Shadow & I played in the same team as Walshie!!
I didn't even know you guys knew eachother personally!
