Described as one of the game’s greatest ever players and also one of its deepest thinkers, rugby league legend Ian Walsh’s accomplishments are unparalleled. Walsh passed away on Thursday aged 80 in his home town of Forbes after a long illness, leaving an incredible legacy in the game he loved.

The St George great had the unique distinction of being the only player to captain-coach his club to a premiership and his country to an Ashes series win - a feat he achieved in 1966.Born in Bogan Gate, NSW, on March 20, 1933, Walsh represented City, Country, NSW and Australia. Ian Walsh following a Test match on the Kangaroos 1959-60 tour of Great
