Very tough read. I went to Beaumaris Primary in the 60's. Think the bloke mentioned here wasn't there then. But I did hear recently that the sports bloke who was there in our time had a bit of a reputation. I remember him as a nice guy who took us on Car Rallies on the weekend. Makes me think now. Nothing ever happened to me, but I wonder about others. Terrible.

This read consumed my afternoon. Plenty to take in.

I've been fortunate enough to have the 'normal' upbringing Rod was lucky enough to have in his earlier days.

Really makes me take stock and be thankful that I didn't have that happen to me as a kid.

I don't blame him.

I don't blame your club.

He, and others in a similar boat, I give my thoughts and prayers :thumbsu:

Not sure if it's been mentioned but there is a GoFundMe page set up for Rod.
I believe it's the same person who set up the successful campaign for Robbie Muir.
