Herbert ' Dally' Messenger
Founder of Rugby League in Australia
  • General Info
General Information
Description
Herbert Henry "Dally" Messenger was one of Australasia's first professional rugby footballers, recognised as one of the greatest-ever players in either code. Messenger, or 'The Master' as he was dubbed, represented his country in two rugby union tests and seven rugby league tests. He played for New South Wales in the very first rugby match run by the newly created 'New South Wales Rugby Football League' which had just split away from the established New South Wales Rugby Football Union. Messenger had a stocky build, and while standing only about 172 cm in height, he was a powerful runner of the ball and solid defender. According to his peers the centre's greatest attributes were his unpredictability and astonishing physical co-ordination, coupled with a freakish ability to kick goals from almost any part of the ground. He was a teetotaller and non-smoker during his career and other than breakfast, Messenger would rarely eat before a match.
