The Dragons would like to send their condolences to the family and friends of former St George prop Brian Norton following his passing earlier this week.

Norton joined the Dragons in 1971 from North Sydney and went on to play four seasons with the club, before re-joining the Bears in 1975.

Norton was famous for scoring the "most remarkable front-row forward try" veteran broadcaster Frank Hyde had ever seen, just before half-time against the Cronulla Sharks at the Sydney Cricket Ground during his first season with the Red V.

The 75-metre effort from Norton was the talk of the town with it splashed across newspapers and news bulletins following the Dragons 24-20 win.  

Brian Norton record

NSW Country Firsts (1967)
North Sydney Bears (1968-1970 & 1975) – 47 games
St George Dragons (1971-1974) – 43 games
