Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Roy Masters has described rugby league as a 'stoic, grim and often painful struggle interspersed with rare moments of exhilaration.' This description is an accurate portrayal of Masters' first professional coaching job with the Western Suburbs Rugby League Football Club (RLFC) between 1978 and 1981. This period of Wests' history might also be described as their 'Fibro Years'. During these years, Wests played most games with a ferocity and determination usually only seen in grand finals, yet they never succeeded in winning a premiership.
