Farewell for Walsh

Townsville Bulletin - - NEWS -

PHIL Walsh would have looked at the mourn­ers and won­dered what the fuss was all about, says a great mate. The Ade­laide Crows AFL coach, al­legedly killed by his son on July 3, was farewelled at a me­mo­rial at Ade­laide Oval yesterday. Friend and AFL iden­tity Rob Snow­den said Walsh would have been be­mused by the large gath­er­ing. “He’d never want peo­ple dwelling over this,” he said. Snow­den, who worked with Walsh at Port Ade­laide a decade ago, said the 55- year- old lived a “ful­filled life”. “He’s had an ex­tra­or­di­nary life, no doubt. We know it’s too short,” Snow­den said.
