Official legends of the game
ROHAN and Stephanie Hancock are the first father-and-daughter to play for Australia and are proud of it.
Now they are part of the Warwick Rugby League Wall of Legends, which was unveiled on Saturday at Father Ranger Oval to recognise 46 players and officials.
Their first games in the green and gold were certainly memorable. Rohan was knocked out against New Zealand and doesn't remember his first 60 minutes of Test footy while Stephanie was sinbinned.
"I tackled a player on the shoulder and then my arm slipped up," she said.
"I sure look up to Dad."
Mr Hancock said Glen Whitton had done a wonderful job organising the Wall of Legends.
"I heard a lot about the tough men who played years ago. They were tougher in those days," Mr Hancock said.
His most vivid memory is running out in his first State of Origin game, two or three players behind Maroons captain Artie Beetson.
Joan Ryan and Kathy Hammett were in Warwick for the induction of their father Eddie Brosnan, a 1948 Kangaroos tourist and Collegians coach.
Mrs Ryan recalled her mother filling a Tupperware container with sandwiches before heading off to a Sunday of rugby league in the 1960s.
"I remember travelling as far as Goondiwindi and Tenterfield," Mrs Ryan said.
Former Collegians and current Cowboys official Greg Carey and former Eastern Suburbs/Cowboys official Con Seibel presented the induction certificates.
Mrs Hammett said her father talked about the wonderful time he had in an era when they travelled by boat to England, France and India as part of the 1948 Kangaroos team.
She said her father, who was in the police force, loved his time in Warwick.
"Dad was a humble man. He was keen to teach the boys how to play football and keep them off the street."
The siblings watched a lot of the games of their brother Eddie who was captain of the same Collegians (premiership winning) teams which also included their first cousin Wayne Bennett.
