Robert Culkin honoured at Rugby League Central

Happy Birthday to Mr Robert Culkin, who turns 100 today, Tuesday 12th July, 2016

Robert joined Canterbury Referees in 1943 after requesting a transfer from Wests. He was then Graded between 1944-1949. Robert rejoined our Association in 2008, which was quite fittingly the 'Centenary of Rugby League'

Robert was honoured yesterday at Rugby League Central in Moore Park. Robert was on hand to present the State of Origin 3 Officials with their on field jerseys. Gerard Sutton then presented Robert with an honorary jersey of his own.

In presenting the commemorative jersey to Robert, Gerard Sutton said "Robert and his colleagues really dug the well that we drink from. Thank you for your legacy and it is that legacy we will try to uphold when we walk onto the field on Wednesday night"
