Is the Stephen Dank, mentioned ad infinitum in the drug controversy,the same Danksy that strapped for Norths in the mid to late 80s.He was a young bloke,well informed that,I am sure,was doing Sports Science at the time.I think he strapped with Dave Gerrard who came across from Wests for a couple of years and strapped state of origin teams.I thought his name was Stepen Danks not Dank but it is very close.I even think when he left Norths he had his first job with a southern club.Before Dave came he was the only strapper we had for a year or two.......was very committed.

I just saw his picture in the paper.....thats him.....was skinnier with blonde curly hair then.
Have the coppers raided yet ,or have we been tipped off by the Nundah CIB!!!!!!!!

Christ I hope they got rid of the old filing cabinet in the announcing box and the bolt hole in the 5th brick 3rd course eastern wall in the new canteen.

I always wondered why we could run out games those days......and the physique of our players....Cocky,Reidy and the man atlas Darryl Duncan.(although I now understand how performance enhancing drugs affect teeth!!!)I guess even 2 pots could owe Danksy his committment to training.He was always drinking plenty of stuff in the back bar.....and I always thought it was beer.

Poor old Pots. Much maligned because of his nick name that Spike Millican gave him. He never drank anymore than anyone else. He just always looked like he did with the uncombed hair.

Dean nice bloke with long black hair....think he came over with a heap of Norths aspley kids, including Guy (Slug) Harvey?Danksy had his work cut out with Dean.......was a work in progress.It was either Olly or KB who bought Danks into the club,as I said very committed.

I just watched the Cronulla interview.....totally underwhelmed by the woman.....certainly gunning for Dank....damaging to League,ASADA gives the public nothing and are working smoke and mirrors,must be public school boys,nothing going on in the game they play in heaven.

On a lighter note Danksy told us he was giviing the boys Pepsi
