BIOGRAPHY

Max Garbler by Alex Service

Max signed for the Saints from Randwick Rugby Union club in Sydney. He was essentially a back-row forward and he faced competition from the likes of Welshman Ray Cale, George Parsons and Vince Karalius. Max spent quite a lot of his time playing in the A Team, although he had quite lengthy spells in the First Team too. In 1950-51 he made 17 appearances and the following season 23, his best for the club, mostly at loose forward. Max did not figure in any matches during Jim Sullivanís first season at the club, in 1952-53 and looked to have a limited future in First Grade. Yet he was nothing if not durable and bounced back with 18 appearances and 5 tries in 1955-56, although he was not selected for the Wembley squad. He made his final appearance at Hull on 15th September 1956, when the Saints lost 6-17. The back row that day was Gaskell, Delves and Garbler.
Max returned to Australia when his time was up at St.Helens and we believe that he did some coaching Down Under with one of the Sydney clubs for a spell. If anyone has any further information regarding this player, we would like to hear from you.
