The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - SPORT -

FOR­MER player, coach, CEO and chair­man Paul Broughton was recog­nised for a life­time com­mit­ment to rugby league with an Or­der of Aus­tralia Medal in the Queen’s Birth­day hon­ours. At 86, Broughton is still a re­spected fig­ure in the game. Peo­ple such as Phil Gould stay in touch and call him for ad­vice.

When Broughton’s OAM was an­nounced, he re­ceived hun­dreds of text mes­sages. Sadly, not one was from the NRL.
