THE seventh induction for the Group Three Rugby League Hall of Fame (HOF) will be held at the Wingham Services Club on Friday November 29.
The HOF was launched in 2013. It is to honour those who played the majority of their football in Group Three or had a significant impact on the competition.
Potential inductees can be nominated by current clubs or by the general public. Players whose clubs are no longer part of Group Three are still eligible for the HOF.
There are a number of inductees from Gloucester, even though the Magpies now play in a Hunter-based competition, others from the now defunct Taree Old Bar and Taree United clubs.
The group keeps all the nominations and they are reviewed each year by the judging panel as part of the selection process.
It has been the custom to induct four players each year and this will again be the case on November 29. Players have to be retired before they will be considered for the HOF.
The most recent inductees were Gary Bridge, Keith Tull, Barrie Morrison and Barrie Smith.
Bridge played with Taree United and Wingham and represented Country Seconds before carving out successful career in Sydney. He has been heavily involved in senior and junior rugby league since returning to Taree.
