BELOW : Tamworth High School 1972 14A Rugby League team. Warren Rodwell ( top row / 2nd from left ) played as a second-row forward. Second rowers are often relied upon to perform large numbers of tackles in defence. Like prop forwards, they are also primarily used for running directly into the defensive line, as a kind of “battering ram” to simply gain metres . Similarly, they defend against such running from the opposition’s forwards.

WR TAMWORTH CONNECTION

Although born in Sydney, Warren grew up and attended Tamworth West Public ( school vice-captain and dux in 1970 ) and Tamworth High Schools. In fact, his late father was a bricklayer, who helped build THS in the late 1950s. Warren’s late mother’s name was Ellen Rodwell ( nee Scott ). Tamworth was her hometown. Their family connection dates back to at least 1915 when  great grandfather John Ditton Scott ( 1871 – 1955)  transferred down from Glen Innes as a railway employee. One locally-based cousin jokes that before she got married herself, she was related to 25% of the people in Tamworth. After marriage, that increased to 50%.
