Unforgettable Bill Cavubati

Many long time Woodies fans will remember big Bill's brief cameo with the Club back in the 1990s. Undoubtedly the largest human to ever run onto TG.

Seems we weren't the only ones for whom Bill is an unforgettable memory. Take it away Hamish Bidwell

"Giant Wellington prop Bill Cavubati will be remembered by one or two older readers. To say he dawdled round the paddock would be an insult to dawdlers, but he was fleet of foot when he felt like it.

On this day, Cavubati collected a bouncing ball on Wellington’s side of halfway, burst through the New South Wales defence and then went round fullback Matt Burke to score under the posts.

If you hadn’t seen it, you wouldn’t have believed it."
