Which NSWRL club were informally known as the Country Bumpkins'?

Canterbury Bankstown.
CB which stood for Canterbury Bankstown were also the initials for Country Bumpkins but they earned the Country Bumpkins tag from raiding players from the country to build their playing roster in their early years.

Bit more of a tricky one...

Who was the last player to be sent off twice in consecutive matches..

Was first grade and in australia, the matches were back to back (ie wasn’t a send off, suspension, then sent off again..)

Well known player, and a cult hero to both clubs he played for.

Id go someone with a reputation and back to the wild 70s or 80s. Maybe Les Boyd or Dallas Donnely

Neither of those..

It was in the late 90’s. A dragon. In Matches versus Wests, then Souths. Both for high tackles. A forward.

He played at another club in the 2000’s.
Trying to think of dirty dragons forwards, to many to name (just kidding..)

Wayne Bartrim use to sail close to the wind, think he was a still a Dragon though in the 2000s

Nah ill go Lance Thompson, even though he was a clean player. He was sort of a cult hero and did play with Sharks towards the end.

It was Lance Thompson in 1998!

I actually saw this trivia in a dragons fan page I’m on. I had no idea til it was revealed. To quote the “trivia master”..

“ In Round 7 (26/4/98) he was sent off v Wests at Campbelltown for a high tackle but wasn't suspended. In Round 8 (3/5/98) he was sent off v Souths at Kogarah for another high tackle. Amazingly, St. George won both games”

That owner was a loose cannon. Legend has it that Muller's wife Lyn even helped pick the side based on the presentation of player's posteriors..
