Ray Warren -& Rugby League at Parra Marist -

Father of Chis Warren. Ray in known as the voice of rugby League.

As quoted in his biography The Voice: My Story by Ray Warren (with Andrew Webster), he writres:


Parramatta Marist Brothers had long been overlooked as a school for young talented kids from the country who were good at rugby league. Both the Parramatta and Canterbury clubs had been putting these kids into Fairfield Patrician Brothers. I made it clear to Denis Fitzgerald, the boss at Parra, that my sons' school, Parramatta Marist, would love to be considered, too.

Fitzgerald made it happen, and suddenly we were hosting a kid from Nelson Bay.

By this time, I had met my second wife, Cher. We married in 1994 and have been together 29 years now. Cher and I took the boarder from the country in to stay for a week while the school found a permanent home for him. He ended up staying with us for about four months, while he helped the school try to win the premier schoolboys' cup."
