I am a very proud New South Welshman, and it makes me very sad to hear about Artie passing away.

He is a legend for helping create S.O.O...was a tremendous role model for aboriginal people (first indigenous captain of his country in any sport) and one of the best to ever play.

RIP big Artie.
Cheers

What a loss to rugby league. A true legend from the days when the game was played by 13 men for 80 minutes. Tough as nails that lot.

We'll miss u Artie! :cheers: :bow:

Big Man..Big Heart..bl..dy Big Footprint left on the Game..RIP Big Fella. :cry:

I pray that one day God sends me a fish so big that, when talking of it...I have no reason to lie.
