The NRL has today acknowledged the passing of former St George winger Eddie Lumsden.
A Grand Final hero with the Dragons, Lumsden passed away on the morning of the 2019 Premiership decider.
Lumsden played 19 games for New South Wales and 15 Tests for Australia over the course of his career. He also played briefly with Manly-Warringah.
“Eddie was a wonderful player and was a key part of St George’s run of Premierships through the 1950s and 1960s,” NRL CEO Todd Greenberg said.
“He was a prolific try-scorer. In fact his try-scoring almost kept pace with the number of games he played. He will be remembered as one of the greatest wingers of his era.
“To win nine premierships in 10 years at the Dragons is quite extraordinary.
“On behalf of the game I offer my sincerest condolences to Eddie’s family and friends.”
