Many are aware of the incredible feat the St George Dragons achieved across the 1950s and 1960s, which saw them win 11 premierships in succession to set a record that still stands today.

But it's not widely known that key to the streak was an act of remarkable bravery from rugby league Immortal Norm Provan during the 1962 grand final, in which St George defeated Western Suburbs Magpies 9-6 at the SCG.

In the wake of Provan's death at the age of 89, rugby league author Geoff Armstrong has told a story in an interview with Wide World of Sports that perhaps reflects the heart of the man better than any other.
