My favourite memory of him is the "spanner weather" comment. "So cold it tightens up ya nuts!" I don't think I heard him in the commentary box again after that, but he went on to become a successful coach anyway. He was a good halfback too, especially for the Sharks.
How deeply sad. Of course people say nice things after someone has passed but he is one of those rare blokes who nobody had a bad word to say about him even before this. Not many people spend 30 years in this game with so few detractors. Besides Souths winning, I don't think I have had a happier grand final memory than watching his Cowboys beat the Broncos in 2015 in one of the all time great deciders. RIP.
What a sh*t week it has been .
Paul Green was well loved and respected at all the clubs he was part of . He played most of 2001 season at the Roosters and got a State Of Origin recall that year also, unfortunately he injured himself in the opening game of 2002 and was ruled out for the rest of the season.
The rugby league community is in mourning following the sudden death of Paul Green in Brisbane, aged 49.
“Today we are devastated,” Green’s family said in a statement.
“We have lost a devoted husband, loving father and wonderful brother and son. We cannot find the words that would come close to expressing our feelings, however we would like to extend our thanks to those who have reached out to us with their love and support.
“Paul was loved by so many and we know that this news will generate immense interest, however at this time we ask for privacy.
“Our family is still trying to understand this tragedy and we request space and time as we come to terms with this loss. Thank you.”
