Rugby league legend Norm Provan dies aged 88


Norm Provan, one of the greatest rugby league players of all time and legend of St George’s greatest era, has died aged 88.

Provan played in 10 consecutive premierships with the Dragons between 1956 and 1965, and was named Australian Rugby League’s 13th Immortal in 2018.

His likeness will forever adorn the NRL’s premiership, locked arm in arm with Wests’ captain Arthur Summons after the 1963 grand final.
