Random question but I know Jonathon Docking played a couple of games for NSW but just curious as to why did the bloke retire at 28? I never seen him play but from what I’ve been told the bloke was an absolute weapon?
He had the biggest heart ever, ran the ball back 100 miles an hour, despite being a runt. Very dangerous in space.Terrific player for his size - full of heart and very elusive .
I think his slight frame caught up with him and lost a little bit of pace too perhaps .
I sat next to him for a Sharks / Magpies semi in the mid nineties at Parra Stadium and you would not meet a nicer and more humble bloke …
