The NSWRL is deeply saddened to hear of the passing of former NSW selector Ted Curran.
Curran carved a successful career in the Illawarra region as a rugged forward after coming to Thirroul from Temora in 1958. He played 120 first grade games with the Thirroul Butchers before retiring in 1966.
Curran also had a decorated representative career after playing for Country Seconds on the day he turned 18 in 1952. He also represented Riverina against the American All Stars and played for Southern Division against Great Britain in 1958 and New Zealand in 1959.
Curran continued to contribute to the game post-retirement after being appointed as a selector for the Country Rugby League and NSWRL.
“We’ve lost a great Rugby League person with the passing of Ted Curran,” NSWRL President Bob Millward said.
“He was a long-term Country selector and served on the NSW selection committee where he did his state proud. Ted was a great Rugby League man, both on and off the field, and never stopped giving to the game.
“The NSWRL would like to pass on our sincere condolences to his family and friends.”
