All about giving back for Sunnybank stalwart Peter Lee

By Liam Cook

A Dragon through his juniors, current Sunnybank winger Peter Lee is philosophical about what he wants to achieve in the twilight of his career.

The journeymen is full of gratitude for his experiences in a code he wasn’t always enamoured with.

“I’ve got a bit of a journey. It started a bit unorthodox compared to most rugby players because I played junior league for Easts Mount Gravatt,” Lee told Rugby News.

“I played both union and league from under eleven and twelve but I’ve been at Sunnybank since under twelves.

“I was actually a swimmer before I started playing rugby but I fell in love with team sport.”

It’s this comradery and sense of community that has kept Lee going in premier grade through the years.

“Rugby is just one small component of what premier rugby has to offer, it’s also the community, the life-long friends and being a part of something that is the key”, he said.
