Ken Thornett Player Profile

Ken Thornett was known to his legion of supporters as the Mayor of Parramatta. He was also know to the Leeds fans. a side which he played for in the UK in 61 and 62, as the King of Leeds. It was said during his season with Leeds that he did not drop a single ball.

Thornetts strength at fullback made him a feared opponent. He was strong and nuggety, and difficult to tackle. He played in an era of great fullbacks ... Les Johns, Graeme Langlands and Keith Barnes.

He made the Kangaroo tour in 63 and played with his brother Dick. The first brothers to play together for Australia since the Farnsworth brothers in 1912.
