Rodney Northam

Colleagues Rowing Club (NSW)

Rod Northam hailed from the little known, at least these days, Colleagues Rowing Club. This club was formed the 1959-60 rowing season composed mainly of former Sydney High oarsmen. Noted coach Alan Callaway coached their senior rowers in the early 1960s. They achieved rapid success and Rod was part of that success.
