Where is he now?

Bevan died in a Southport hospital at the age of 66 on Monday, June 3, 1991. The tributes poured in, including one from one of Bevan's arch-rivals Billy Boston - the only other player to have scored more than 500 career tries.
Ex-Wigan winger Boston said in the Warrington Guardian: "Brian Bevan was the greatest I ever played against. He was a real gentleman. No-one will ever near his record."
And Warrington club president Clarrie Owen said: "Words cannot really describe Brian Bevan. He was a one-off. His try-scoring was phenomenal. "I have been privileged to be born in an era which produced Brian Bevan."

Brian Bevan Player Profile

BRIAN Eyrl Bevan is one of Rugby League's all-time greats.

The Australian wing king set records that will never be beaten. He was a one-off and those still alive who saw him play feel heartily privileged.

It was no surprise in October 1988 that Bev was among the original nine all-time greats to be featured in Rugby League's Hall of Fame.
