DAY GROWN MEN CRIED

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - SPORT -

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.
