Rugby League Legend Norm Provan, Dies Aged 88

Rugby league immortal Norm Provan has died, aged 88.

One of the finest second-rowers in the history of the game, Provan won 10 premierships as part of St George's in their golden era of 1956 to 1966.

His image still remains in the game today, as part of the NRL's trophy in the Gladiators image alongside Western Suburbs rival Arthur Summons.

After debuting for the Dragons in 1951, he played 256 games for the club as well as 19 matches for NSW and 14 Tests for Australia.

He was named in Australian rugby league's team of the century in 2008 and was elevated to immortal status in 2018.

His death comes after a tragic year for the sport, following the deaths of fellow immortal Bob Fulton and league legend Tommy Raudonikis.
