I,m a kiwi with an Australian father, a 'queenslander'. My Dad married my kiwi mum and moved to NZ to live 35 years ago.

Dad bought with him his great love of League, State of Origin when it started, and of Wally, the greatest player we've ever seen.

I did grow up in a Rugby League mad family, and being a girl others probably thought it strange.Any school project or reading I could choose, it would be about wally, my hero!

When ever we'd shoot over the ditch to visit the relatives we'd go and watch Wally playing for Wynym Manly, and later the Broncos.

My favourite moment however was Wally's last official Winfield Cup game for the Gold Coast team because we were there in a private box.

Although it was very emotional it was a rare opportunity for us to see the king live on that stage for the last time. And wally produced a few moments of magic for the fans, scoring a try, and beating Penrith ( I think ) on the day.

So from a NZ fan, thanks for the great memories Wally.
