Frank Earl wrote: I knew Ronnie Fury well,he was a powerlifter who started wrestling for Hal Morgan in Sydney in the sixties. He was a larger than life character, always amusing. He was slightly deformed, in that all his fingers were the same length, and he had a speech impediment. When he said “sheep,” it came out “theep.” On one famous occasion, he was rammed from behind by a careless driver in Sydney city centre. Ron asked the other driver if he had a driving licence, and when it was handed to him, Ron ripped it up and dropped the pieces on the floor and said “You bloody well thouldnt have one.” He was a really laid back powerlifter.
