Stalwart of the club and older than Methuselah, Osama Bin Laden look-a-like, player in the very first Canterbury team in 1969, the one and only Dicky Hawson played with OHA Wombats (over 55s) rather than Canterbury Third Grade.

I have played with him on at least 500 of those and received more passes from him playing against him this years than the previous 500 with him.”
