Puig Aubert was the captain of the French Rugby League team that toured Australia in 1951.

At that time I was a 12 year old student at North Newtown Intermediate High School located on Carillon Ave which runs along the southern boundary of Sydney University.

One of the French teachers had connections and the French team was invited to visit the school.

We had read a lot about them in the daily newspapers so there was quite a bit of excitement.

We assembled in the main hall and the Headmaster, one Mr. Peake, gave an address. That was followed by a few speeches and a poorly sung rendition of "La Marseillaise" by the school.

At the conclusion of the assembly, the entire team poured out of the hall on to Carillon Avenue and slowly worked their way towards the Princes Highway, dodging traffic, and all the while throwing long passes to each other.

Puig Aubert was right in the middle of it.

I left Australia for Canada 40 years ago and was a Balmain supporter back in the 50's and 60's.

I don't know why but now, 55 years on, the name Puig Aubert has remained with me still as do the memories of that school assembly so long ago.
