Sabo as he was affectionately know started as a second rower with the Butchers and St Micheals in the early 70’s
He went into grade as a winger and terrorised the opposing outside backs with his up and under the ribs shoulder charge which made him a crowd favourite and earned him the nickname of “The Widow Maker”
His exploits are still spoken about today by all that the old Butchers crew and I’d suppose a few of the opposing players that still remember those ribs getting folded.
Another Thirroul boy gone to soon
RIP Sabo
Funeral and memorial arrangements will be posted ASAP
