Les Davidson was one of my favourite players so I went with his nickname, I am not that cluey with all things computers & when I registered my name I wasn't ware we already had a BundyShark in the forum members.

He'd have every right to be dirty with me for using a almost identical name to him but I swear I didn't know.

Les was one of my faves too - great enforcer in his day.

I browse the threads most days, but rarely have time to post whilst I'm at work.
Anyway, I signed up whilst at work.
My first choices were taken & as I was pushed for time I chose my username as I'm a Fleet Controller for a transport company, and it had a bit of a 'Botany Bay circa 1788' feel to it.

I might've already said this is in an older thread but I chose my name as my earliest memory of supporting the mighty Sharks was when I was a lass of around 3-4 years of age going to a game against Penrith (at Penrith) with my Mum, Dad and younger sister, with Dad and I being one of the few Sharks supporters there chanting 'Sharkies Boom Boom Boom, Sharkies Boom Boom Boom.....'

We ended up flogging them that day. I was hooked.

Facinating yarn my username. I'm from the Capital and like 90% of others I threw a 'Shark' at the end. I didn't realise you could have spaces in the username at the time so that accounts for the '_'. Typing the '_' is a prick on the phone so I wish I didn't have that in there.

So yeah, tell your grandkids about that one.

How did you end up from Engadine to Taree?
Mum and Dad grew up in Engadine and Heathcote and my sister and I were born in Sutherland Hospital. Mum and Dad ended up splitting up and Mum moved to Hazelbrook to be near her parents. Dad ended up following and they got back together. We later moved to Nowra and my husband and I moved to Taree. Haha.

My Dad is actually kicking himself cause he was given a block of land overlooking the water at Bundeena for his 21st but sold it for a pittance when he was young because he didn't want to pay for half the cost of a fence. Hopeless. Haha.
