Around the Traps: Gordon & Norths old boys to kickstart derby weekend in style


We might have a toast to former Test lock Reg Smith at the inaugural Red, Black and Tartan luncheon on Friday at the Crows Nest Hotel.

Wallaby No.537 and former Highlanders coach Norm Tasker have been among the major drivers of the coming together that will see close to 70 former players, coaches and supporters tell some tall tales.

Smith was inducted into the NSW Waratahs Hall of Fame earlier this week along with some of the game’s greats including the likes of Ken Catchpole, Trevor Allan, Rob Heming, Dally Messenger and Johnnie Wallace.

Norths greats John Thornett and Roy Prosser were also inducted into the hall of fame which begins its life with 47 male and 15 female inductees.
