Parramatta Legend Ron Boden

Hi there folks, just wondering if any of you RL history buffs out there would happen to know where former test and Parramatta player Ron Boden played before coming up to Toowoomba in 1958 - all I have been able to find so far is that was somewhere in western NSW?

Don't need to know which exact club it was, just which town/city he was originally graded with? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

As a Parramatta historian I can only find the following -

Toowoomba centre, originally from Western NSW, played for Queensland against NZ in 1959 before touring with the 1959-60 Kangaroos. Boden appeared in 13 matches on tour (no Tests) and was signed by P’matta on his return. He represented NSW in his first season in Sydney and partnered Reg Gasnier in three Tests against France. A nuggetty type and a sound defender, Boden was selected in Australia's World Cup squad in 1960 but although Australia’s campaign in France was unsuccessful, he played in a 'Rest of the World' team against Great Britain at the end of the series. He was P’matta captain-coach in 1961.

Even my book, Parramatta - Quest for Glory published in 1986, does not say where abouts in western NSW Ron Boden is from. Do you know my website has over 1,000 pictures and I have never found a Ron Boden picture.

Hey that's a cool website Slip - I may need further info from you on other Parra players in the future, so don't go too far away...

Yes, finding the relevant information on Ron Boden has been quite a difficult task thus far...
