yes, terribly sad, Phil was a good bloke and worked like an absolute Trojan to make sure as many games as possible were covered every week. Some may have thought him abrupt but he looked after his young AR's well and as a parent of 2 young refs going through the ranks that's all you can ask for.
God Bless Phil and may you continue blowing your whistle
I have just been advised that the funeral for Philip Thomas will be held this Thursday 18 November 2010, 3pm at the North Chapel at Pinegrove Memorial Park, Kington Street (off Great Western Highway), Minchinbury NSW 2770.
The Committee hopes that as many members as possible will be able to attend to pay their last respects to Philip and his family.

Very sad to hear! I had the pleasure of working alongside Phil at Greystanes back some time ago and although he may have come across as abrupt to many people, he always respected them and as such I found great respect for him. My sincerest condolences go out to his family.
