This week on Roosters Radio we sit down with Club Legend Ian Schubert as we mourn the loss of two former Roosters, Barry "Bunny" Reilly and Bob Fulton.

"Shuey" talks about the similarities between Bunny and Victor Radley, training sessions with coach Fulton, City Tatts legend George Daldry and playing alongside Arthur Beetson.

We get his view on the controversy surrounding the game at the moment and as we head toward Indigenous Round, "Shuey" talks about some of his favourite Indigenous players that wore the Red, White and Blue. 

"Arthur Beetson is certainly top of the tree in that regard in my view," he said. 

"I came through an era before where in the late 70s where Kevin Stevens was playing and Greg Townsend, who was one of my favourites. He was skinnier than any other bloke I'd ever seen but was tough as nails.

"There have been lots of [Indigenous players] who have come through this Club over the years, even Ricky Walford was here. They were great times and there were some really good players who have come through.

"I like the round itself; it's a great celebration."
