In what is sad news for the rugby league community, Men of League sends its condolences to the family and friends of former Sharks player Chris Wellman, who passed away suddenly at the aged of 64 at his home at Cabarita near Tweed Heads on Sunday, May 3.

In a tribute to Chris, The Sharks wrote on their website, “Tough, skilful and uncompromising, Wellman was highly rated as a player during what was perhaps the most physical era rugby league has known.”

Chris Wellman’s funeral is scheduled for Tuesday, May 12 at 11.30am at the South Tweed Crematorium. A wake to remember Chris will take place following the funeral service at a venue yet to be determined.
