Nicholas Michael Shehadie
Born in 1926, Nicholas Michael Shehadie grew up in a Sydney suburb. Enjoying an active lifestyle, he joined the local surfing club where many members were avid rugby players, and fostered within him an enthusiasm for the game.
He was rugby royalty, albeit with extraordinary humility. No-one in the rugby world he did not know, no rugby yarn he didn’t enjoy hearing or recounting.
