 Not sure if you  have heard of Terry Williams who until last year was the historian at the NRL Museum at League Central.

Below is a CV of Terry Williams.

Terry Williams has been involved in rugby league history for over 25 years and has written books on Newtown “Out of the Blue” (1993) and “Through Blue Eyes” (2008) as well as the NSWRL Referees Association Centenary Publication “Above All for Rugby League” (2008). He has also written for a number of publications in Australia and overseas and in 2009 delivered the Annual Tom Brock Lecture. In 2017 he was a guest speaker at the Spirit of Anzac Centenary Exhibition at Darling Harbour and in 2018 was asked by Australian coach Mal Meninga to address the Kangaroos, Jillaroos, Junior Kangaroos and both the Men’s and Women’s ADFRL teams at Enoggera Army Barracks. From 2012 until November 2018 he was historian at the NRL museum.


A few years ago I wrote a story on Terry and the museum  see link  below.



Terry has also written books on his beloved Newtown.
