The Sydney Roosters wish to extend their condolences to the family and friends of former player Richard 'Dick' See, following the news of his recent passing.

Player number 462, Dick was a Bronte local who played 91 first grade games at either lock or second row with Easts between 1956-1963, including the 1960 Grand Final against St George.

He also played five first grade games with Newtown in 1964.

A good all-round sportsman from his early days at Waverley College, Dick was selected for the Eastern Suburbs Presidents Cup team in 1955, and was a member of the team which defeated St George 23-5 in the grand final that year.

Dick made his first-grade debut at the old Sports Ground in Eastern Suburbs' 23-16 win against Parramatta on 27 May, 1956.

His first try in the top grade was scored at Cumberland Oval on 29 May, 1960 in Easts' 28-16 win over Parramatta.

His final first grade game was at Belmore Oval on 8 August, 1964 in Newtown's 27-5 win against Canterbury.

As well as sport, Dick had an excellent academic record and completed a Bachelor of Pharmacy and a Bachelor of Commerce at Sydney University. For many years he had chemist shops in several Sydney suburbs.

Dick is survived by his wife of 56 years, June, their four children, Patrick, Catherine, Andrew and Jane, plus his seven cherished grandchildren.
