If rugbyChr(39)s the game they play in heaven then Peter Daley and Brian Corney must be ark angels.
The two Bowral Blacks stalwarts have recently been honoured with life membership of the powerful club and it’s hard to argue with their credentials.
Peter Daley has played over 400 matches for the Blacks in a career that spans as long as the club itself.
“Peter has just been an outstanding member and has never said no when we need his help,” Club President Val Tyson said.
“He’s played every year since the club’s inception and is a well-deserved recipient of life membership.”
Brian Corney has been as equally dedicated to the club but as an administrator rather than a player.
One of the club’s foundation members, Corney has held a number of official positions including that of Club President and Vice-President as well as being a team manager for a host of different teams.
“It really is a great honour to be made a life member,” Corney said.
“I have been involved with the club for a long, long time and I am very grateful that they have decided to bestow this honour upon me.
“I only ever did what I did for the Bowral Rugby Club and being a New Zealander originally, rugby was always the game for me.”
Tyson also paid tribute to the tireless team man, claiming the honour of life member was long overdue.
“While not actually playing, Brian has been an invaluable part of the club,” Tyson said.
“I think it’s very appropriate that he be given the honour of life member in the year 2000 and I personally think it’s an honour that’s well overdue.”
