He was one of the fiercest competitors the game has ever known.
A hard tackling and ruthless player who made a career out of tasking risks, which more often than not, paid off handsomely.
In his prime he was all-powerful and almost all-conquering. Like a fox, he was equal parts cunning and intimidating.
At times he could rightfully be accused of thinking he was biggest than the game – but to be honest, he probably was.
Indeed, he almost blew up the code entirely through sheer selfishness, but ultimately his disruptive antics gave rugby league the shake-up it deserved.
He was a mongrel and a scoundrel, but he will be missed.
Happy retirement, Keith Rupert Murdoch.
