HOW else would for­mer Rich­mond cham­pion HAVEL

ROWE cel­e­brate his 90th birth­day last Tues­day other than 18 holes at his beloved Kew Golf Club?

STE­WART, re­mains a de­voted Tiger af­ter 124 games from 1948-57, in­clud­ing the 1953 best and fairest as a cen­tre­man.

“They have some great play­ers, al­though prob­a­bly the two best I saw or played against would be BOBBY ROSE and TED WHITTEN,” he said.
