So how do you get five fields named after you at Ashgrove ? – well, become a Wallaby captain, an All Black, a Wallaby coach, and President of the Old Boys but still retain that trademark Marist humility.

Des Connor Park (‘the Flats’), where future wallabies hone their skills daily, has been upgraded to present like a billiard table and a surrounding white picket fence is nearing completion.

New signs honour the great man and all that he represents that is Ashgrove. Des paid a visit and liked very much what he saw.

“I am greatly humbled but just so proud of this College and the wonderful men it produces. Long may the traditions continue.”
