DAY GROWN MEN CRIED
GROWN men do cry, even those as tough as old Bulldogs legend Steve Folkes. Former NRL boss David Gallop remembers the day he stripped Canterbury of 37 competition points over the 2002 salary cap scandal and, in doing so, reduced Folkes to tears.
“I’ll never forget … it was just Folkesy and me in my office with a huge media pack outside,” Gallop recalled. “Both of us just sat there crying. It showed how much the club meant to him.”
Folkes’ funeral will be held at Belmore Sportsground tomorrow from 3pm. All fans are welcome.
