A TRIBUTE TO KEN McCAFFERY
Like many things in the last 7 weeks, our Ken McCaffery Round was cancelled last month however we still wanted to pay tribute to the great man and his importance to the North Sydney Bears. With the family’s help, we have put together this video tribute to honour Ken.
Ken was a legend on the rugby league field having played not only for the Bears from 1957 – 1959 and is listed in our Team of the Century, but also played at elite representative levels for Queensland and Australia. However, it is Ken’s greatness off the field that made him a true champion. His genuine care and love was evident in all who met him. His son Paul McCaffery, who also played for Norths in the 1980’s, comments “He was lucky enough to be intelligent, charismatic and a gifted athlete which gave him a great platform to have a great life and spread the love. He was a beautiful man”.
What a legend, what a life!
