Between the Posts is your weekly update of what’s happening in the lives of our past, present and future Brydens Lawyers NSW Blues players.

Mini Gal

One day after Paul Gallen retired, a mini-me emerged.

Gallen’s incredible career came to a close last Saturday night at Lottoland after 348 NRL games, 24 State of Origins and 32 Test matches.

On the Sunday morning, his son Kobe was in a team that won the Tommy Bishop Shield, the first Cronulla team to do so since 1982.

Joel Caine’s son also plays in the team and they all posed for a photo together last week.

Raider awards

Their season is far from over, but the Canberra Raiders celebrated their 2019 season awards during the week.

Blues players Jack Wighton and Nick Cotric didn’t come away with any awards but stole the show on the red carpet.

All loved up

Speaking of stealing the show, Mitchell Pearce’s partner Kristin did that at the Newcastle Knights end-of-season awards night throughout the week.

Pearce posted a photo of the pair with an adorable caption to match.

Bankwest Fortress

Former Blues Michael Jennings was at his devastating best last weekend in the Parramatta Eels’ demolition of the Brisbane Broncos.

The Eels get no more games at Bankwest Stadium this year, but have turned it into a serious fortress in 2019.

Blues squad member Clint Gutherson posted a photo of former Blue Michael Jennings tearing up the field after the game last week.
