Warriors 1st Grader
- Sep 1, 2015
Back in the day quite a few league players went away for selling dope. One I recall was Wayne "Butch" Beri from Canterbury. Amazing talent, but wasted.For someone who has never been to prison, a year is an extremely harsh experience.
Another was a genuine rock star in Auckland. He was offered trials in Sydney but was making too much on the side here.
Only did short stints inside, but I recall his first stint he cried himself to sleep at night for ages.
The thing is he was no pussy, or bully, He was a genuine tough bastard who would fight one on one to sort things out. He would have been able to handle anybody inside, it was just the realization that he was...inside.
Last I heard he was living alone in a small pensioner flat in Auckland. I jest not this dude used to roll in wads of $20 bills. He always dressed really well and drove the most amazing V8s.
Michael Corleone was fiction.
