‘Absolute privilege’: daughter pays tribute to Fulton; Jones, Hadley to speak at funeral

Radio duo Alan Jones and Ray Hadley will join rugby league great Ian Schubert in speaking at Bob Fulton’s state funeral as hundreds arrive to pay their respects to the Manly legend at St Marys Cathedral on Friday morning.

The rugby league community was rocked last month as news broke of the 74-year-old Immortal’s death following a long battle with cancer.

“I never understood the fuss. It was just you, my Dad.

“It used to annoy me a little (well a lot) when people would come up to you on the street asking for a photo or an autograph.

“This would happen all over the world, not just at home. You took it in your stride.

“You were so giving and generous with your time and would talk to anyone from all walks of life.”

Fulton’s two sons Brett and Scott will join four of Fulton’s grandsons Zac, Kobe, Jake and Ethan as pallbearers for the service.

Manly Leagues Club at Brookvale will also be streaming the funeral service.
