It was an honour for our Canterbury Cup NSW squad to meet John "Joe Cool" Dorahy in the lead up to our season opener against St George Illawarra Dragons this Sunday.
John is a member of the Western Suburbs Magpies Team of the Century who debuted for Western Suburbs in 1974 and played almost 300 first grade games in Australia & England. 99 of those with Wests.
John was kind enough to present the #1 jersey to our incumbent fullback and Wests Tigers top 30 player, Dylan Smith.
As a nod to our history, John's name & Magpie number (#702) have been embroidered on to our #1 jerseys for 2020, ensuring that he is part of our 2020 journey.
Your Magpies kick off their Canterbury Cup NSW season at 3:45pm on Sunday against St George Illawarra Dragons at WIN Stadium.
