As many of you already know, Paul
Canning taught Johnathan Thurston when he attended St Mary's College. As JT is retiring, the NRL Footy Show did a panel segment on JT.
Paul has been invited to be part of the panel on the show as one of JT's influential coaches. Paul was flown to Sydney for the interview. This was not Paul's first television appearance regarding his involvement with football, however, will be his first time on the NRL Footy Show panel.
With over 30 years of service to education and the
development of young people within a sporting context, this is a huge milestone in Paul's career. What a wonderful reflection for him as he is able to engage with a past student at such an esteemed level, and know that he has had a positive impact on a young man's life to such an extent.
Congratulations to Paul.
