Title: ... p22 - Memories of Vince Karalius - by John Pearson Yeppoon Qld Au

My son Matthew and I stayed with Vince Karalius on the Isle of Mann in 1975. My Father had met Vince in Rockhampton when the touring poms side played a CQ team in the 50's I think, Vince and a winger name, again I think, Mike O'Sullivan cane to dinner at our hours after my Father offered them a lift to a Drs surgery prior to the game. My Father and Vince remained friends over the years often corresponding and keeping in touch. When Vince and Barbara visited Australia as guests of the ARL they caught up in Brisbane. Matt, my son, was on student exchange in Norway for twelve months when he and I went followed the Kanmgeroos on the 75 tour. We stayed with Vince, Barbara and their granddaughter Gemma at their home on the Isle of Mann for a few days. He was at the time retired and teaching Catholism in schools on a casual basis. He also taught boxing to young boys at his home.
We spent one memoribal night looking at and wearing his great collection of memoribellia, 
English jerseys, caps, photos, newpaper articles etc.
It weas a highlight of our trip.

Matt, now a qualified accountant work with RL players in Brisbane through a business call Life Arena who manage players such as Sam Thiaday, Dave Taylor and many others (see Website)
