Plenty in the sporting community turned out to farewell veteran Rugby League figure Harry Bath yesterday.
Bath – who died last week at the age of 83 – was remembered by his grandchildren along with Immortals and former teammates Reg Gasnier and John Raper.
Former Kangaroos captain Keith Barnes and Sid Ryan were also there representing Bath’s Grand Final wins with Balmain (1946-47).
Bath coached Balmain (1961-66) to grand finals against St George (1964 and 1966). He also coached Newtown (1969-72) and Australia (1962 and 1968-1972)
'The Old Fox' carried his aggressive forward influence into the next generation when he successfully coached a young St George Dragons side to two premiership victories in 1977 and 1979.
He retired from coaching in 1981 and was inducted into the Rugby League Hall of Fame in 2004. - Read More, Here
