He represented state and country but Shaun Timmins didn't crack a spot in the Kiama Knights' Team of the Century.
Born and bred in Kiama, Timmins played 13 seasons in the NRL with the Illawarra Steelers and St George Illawarra Dragons.
A versatile player who shifted between centre, five-eighth and back-rower, he played nine games for NSW and also represented Australia nine times.
But despite coming through the Kiama junior ranks, Timmins was ineligible for inclusion in the club's 100-year team.
"The criteria for selection was players must have played grade with the club, and that eliminated Timmins, who is one of Kiama's favourite sons," Group Seven historian John O'Dwyer said.
The team is: Fred Pepper, Brett and Josh Morris, Matt Graham, Ray Stead, Vince Olivera, Brian Piper, Peter French, Mitch Rein, Stan Weir, Daniel Gunning, Arthur Hall, Frank King, Artie Pepper, David Jeffcott, Graeme Murtagh and John Gannon. Ken Gentle was named coach.
