Wests Tigers remember Roy Liston, as the Club commemorates the 100th Anniversary of the Gallipoli landings this Friday night against the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs.
Liston played for both Balmain and Wests, as well as Annandale and Glebe, and served in World War I in France with the 2nd Field Company.
He won a premiership with Balmain in 1924, and after retiring as a player, served as a Wests administrator and as their official timekeeper for many decades.
Hear from The Hon. Brendan Nelson MP and Wests Tigers Life Member Mark O'Neill as they reflect on Liston's sacrifice as well as all those who served their country during the war.
Wests Tigers are set to auction off player-worn and team-signed ANZAC Commemorative jerseys from tomorrow night’s Round 8 clash against the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs, with a donation to be made to Legacy from the sale of those jerseys.
The auction will run from now until 5:00pm next Thursday, April 30, 2015.
Wests Tigers are looking forward to working with Legacy, who provide support to the families of the Australian Defence Force who have given their life or health for their country.
Legacy currently cares for around 90,000 families throughout Australia aged between one week and 103 years of age. The only organization of it’s kind in the world, Legacy has 50 clubs within Australia and relies on donations and volunteers to carry out its vital work as they confront the harsh and distinct challenges of modern conflict.
