Ray's value to this organization is seen in the sheer volume of his involvement over a long period of time. He has been involved in schoolboy rugby league with NSWCHS since 1964 and still acts as the NSWCHS Minute Secretary today.
He has always been a man who puts his hand up when work is to be done - he has hosted any number of interstate exchanges, three Test matches against BARLA, BUSCARLA and New Zealand plus Australian Championships, and he has done these with great skill and organizational ability.
Ray was the NSWCHS Vice president and delegate to the ASSRL for 20 years ( since 1978), served as an Australian selector on numerous occasions over the same period, and remains one of this organization's most outstanding coaches, having never been defeated as the NSWCHS or Australian coach.
He has the knack I have seen many times of getting the best out of his players and co-workers, and he is the most tactful of diplomats with overseas opponents.
Ray Montgomery is a most worthy recipient of Life Membership.
