It was a beautiful gesture from Green Machine – four of their star players were pallet bearers at this week’s funeral for Professor Mike Gore, the founder of Questacon and Canberra Raiders superfan. Ryan Sutton, Josh Papalii, Jarrod Croker and Sia Soliola carried Professor Gore’s coffin into his funeral on Thursday at the Norwood Park Crematorium. Professor Gore’s son Tim Gore said the players received an exemption from the NRL for attending, quietly getting in and out of the service, leaving the family with a special memory. Tim said the players did his father “a great honor by taking him on his last trip. Thank you so much boys”. Professor Gore died on January 8, aged 87, and paid tribute to this contribution to science. Tim Gore said his father and mother Joyce had been members of the Raiders since 1989. His father was born in Bolton, Lancashire and studied at Leeds University.

Players wore the red rose from Lancashire and the white rose from Yorkshire. Tim Gore is also a big Raiders fan, co-host of the podcast Raiders Review along with Blake & The Pork and an ABC NRL sideline eye.
