Title: ... p25 - Story on Peter Dimond and Johnny King - by John Tierney

I played in an Illawarra Rep side against Sydney's Western Suburbs in 1964. We beat Wests, but I ran into Peter Dimond on several occasions (or he ran into me) and I have to agree with many others that he was a very, very 'tough' man.

However, I have had the pleasure of meeting him a couple of times recently and he is a pleaure to be associated with and is a gentleman.

Johnny King is lining up for his first match on the wing to face Peter Dimomd. He says to the coach "I've heard this Dimond is pretty hard. What do you think is the best thing to do if I see him coming at me?"
The coach says "Pick up a handful of s--t and throw it in his face"
"Where am I gonna get a handful of s--t from " asks Kingy.
"Mate, if you see Peter Dimond coming at you you'll be sh----ng yourself!!!"
