    Return: Colin Fraser (right) is now the new Penshurst RSL U16's coach.

    Colin "Hollywood" Fraser has returned to his junior Rugby League club, the Penshurst RSL Kookaburras.

    His career as a professional rugby league player went from representing the NSW under 18's to first grade with the St George Dragons, Sydney City Roosters, Central Coast and Western Australia.

    Col said the pandemic had changed plans for him and provided the opportunity to reconnect with his first club.

    "Throughout my football career, I always wanted to give back to my junior club. However, I could never find the right amount of time. "

    Club president Sean Willett said COVID-19 restrictions had rescheduled its sixty-year celebrations.

    "Hollywood has been a positive link between the old boys and the 2021 players. We are grateful he is our Junior Vice President and u16s coach."

    Penshurst has three players selected into St George rep squads, Manase Feiloakitau - Harold Matthews, Tom Pitkethley and Jonathan Delinicolis- S.G. Ball.

    Sean said the boys had earned their spot doing the extras at training and displaying great sportsmanship.

    Had an old “friend” who used to work with him a long time ago. From memory he was a financial advisor. I used to sit & have a chat with him whenever I got the chance. Nice bloke.

    No, unless they were mid to late sixties ! The o'sullivans, Barker & O'briens were dominant then.

    Miltons were definitely playing junior footy there then but a bit younger probably
    In 69 they would have been 17 or so
    I had O’Briens (a very big family) as neighbours in Peakhurst the eldest boys being Tom, Dennis, Patrick, Ken all played junior footy before the Peakhurst Hawks were formed but not sure which club if not Penshurst maybe Riverwood United.
