COLMAN ON SUNDAY TOP SONS OF GUNS
WITH the Easts Tigers’ run at the Intrust Super Cup premiership ending two weeks early, the NRL feelers will be out in earnest for five-eighth Billy Walters, son of Maroons coach and Broncos legend Kevin.
The Broncos and Storm have reportedly shown interest in signing him for next season, along with a number of Sydney clubs.
Should Walters make it to the NRL, he will join a select band of secondgeneration players following in the boot studs of their famous fathers.
Should he make a name for himself in his own right, he might even make it into our Son Also Rises XIII. It would be a formidable line-up. Son of Dragons, Roosters halfback-wingerback winger Steve “Slippery” Morris. Wing – Joel Reddy (Eels, Rabbitohs): Father “Rocket” Rod, an original Maroon, was one of the Dragons’ best, and dirtiest, ever.
May not have quite hit the career heights of his father, Eels legend Eric Sr, but he did get to share his nickname “Guru”. Along with brothers Luke and Bronx, he is one of three first grade-playing sons of irrepressible Dragons great “Lord” Ted Goodwin. Like his twin Brett, almost as slippery as his dad Steve. Fiv (A Tit His father, Cronulla great Ste Steve Rogers, was dubbed “the prince of centres”. Mat did him proud. Halfback – Nathan Cleary (Panthers): Top NRL point-scorer for the 2017 season, to which his father Ivan could rightly say “been there, done that” … in 1998. Souths hardman John Sattler entered grand final folklore playing with a broken jaw in 1970. Son Scott did it with a tackle to help the Panthers to a title 33 years later.
Father Paul played 246 games for the Tigers and might have been a grand final winner if coach Warren Ryan hadn’t dragged him late against the Raiders in 1989. Second row – Ben Spina (Cowboys): A hard-working backrower, his halfback father Laurie was the Cowboys’ inaugural captain. Father Johnny was an original Maroon, but his proudest moment was coaching Marty to a premiership with Penrith in 2003. . Secondhighest pointscoring forward behind Cam Smith. His father Allan played centre for Balmain in their 1979 boilover grand final win over the Rabbitohs.
Arguably the Dragons’ greatest father-son pairing. Dean played 209 times for the Red V, scoring in the 2010 grand final, the club’s first premiership since dad Craig led them to the 1979 title.
all these achievements despite the UN sanctions that have lasted for decades,” the agency quoted Mr Kim as saying.
Mr Kim said the country’s final goal “is to establish the equilibrium of real force with the US and make the US rulers dare not talk about military option for the DPRK” (Democratic People’s Republic of Korea).
The Security Council stressed in a statement that all countries must “fully, comprehensively and immediately” implement all UN sanctions.
Japan’s UN ambassador Koro Bessho called the missile launch an “outrageous act” that was a threat to Japan’s security and to the world.
Calling the latest launch a “terrible, egregious, illegal, provocative reckless act,” Britain’s UN ambassador Matthew Rycroft said North Korea’s largest trading partners with closest links – a clear reference to China – must “demonstrate that they are doing everything in their power to implement the sanctions of the Security Council and to encourage the North Korean regime to change course.” South Korean President Moon Jae-in, a liberal who initially pushed for talks with North Korea, said its tests made dialogue “impossible”.
“If North Korea provokes us or our allies, we have the strength to smash the attempt at an early stage and inflict a level of damage it would be impossible to recover from,” he said.
