The NRL has inducted five former players into the prestigious Immortals group.
Raiders legend Mal Meninga and former Dragons skipper Norm Provan have both been added.
Dally Messenger, Dave Brown and Frank Burge were also inducted as Immortals.
It was the first opportunity for that trio to be considered, as previous candidates were restricted to the post-World-War-II era.
“The judges took the view that this was a one-off opportunity to recognise the past, to recognise three players from the pre-war era who became legends of the game,” NRL CEO Todd Greenberg said.
The five join Andrew Johns (2012), Clive Churchill (1981), Bob Fulton (1981), Reg Gasnier (1981), Johnny Raper (1981), Graeme Langlands (1999), Wally Lewis (1999) and Arthur Beetson (2003) as Immortals.
