My father told me, when I was a young boy, that the police played rugby union in a mid-week competition with other public service branches.  My father, Ben Weber, played rugby league on the weekends with Balmain.

The small photo was taken at Bombala in 1929, which is the year after Dad joined the force.  He is 4th from the left in the back row.  On his left is Wal Maisey (not sure about the spelling).  I can just remember Wal coming to our house in Drummoyne and I seem to remember Dad telling me that Wal rode motor bikes.
