Condolences to the family of Al Horne

It’s sad to hear the passing of one of our own. Al Horne was a fierce competitor and had a bloody great sense of humour to boot. I was on a recruiting trip at a party back in the day for two Brown Brothers Tima and Nudie and was told by Al and Manaki that they were “Yep” men. Yep, yep and never show…haha.
Yep, Al and Manaki were right, but they were all in and that was the start of our Moorabbin Masters team with many more of their mates to join.

Al’s family have made arrangements in line with the Covid restrictions for friends and family to be able to pay their respects…

“We have decided to honor our father with a guard of honor. So, for those who would like to pay their respects to Koro / Al and show their aroha, we the whanau kindly ask you all to come to Casey Warriors Rugby League Club @ 10am on Saturday 2nd of October. Our extended whanau will be down there to direct everyone accordingly.

We will be driving him through the main carpark doing a lap of honor in his memory. We would love everyone to wear their favourite league jersey to show your tautoko and aroha for our dad and his love for the game.”
