WHS LEGEND James Cottrell - Orwell 62-69
  • outstanding sportman - Captain of both Rugby & Cricket in 68-69
  • rugby: played THREE SEASONS in 1st XV
  • believed never to have played in a losing team during his entire WHS career





Louis Parperis - Orwell 63-70: As I have said before, I was fortunate enough to play in the 1st XV with both Jim Cottrell and Dave Waight and can testify to their enormous individual skill as players and what today is referred to as their game management. Jim was much more powerful physically than Dave and, in my opinion, although incredibly modest he exuded an aura of invincibility that affected and inspired those around him.
