It was sadly reported in October that Redcliffe Dolphins player, the club who form the backbone of the NRL’s newest side The Dolphins, Liam Hampson had died on holiday at the age of 24.
Now NRL star, Gold Coast Titans man AJ Brimson has promised to dedicate not just a try, a season but his whole career to Hamspon in a touching tribute.
“I was already thinking about this and I don’t want to be corny and make like a statement, but I want to dedicate my season and career to Liam,” Brimson said when asked if he had plans to pay tribute to Hampson a he spoke to Fox League.
“I need to get some sort of a tattoo that cannot be under my jersey or shorts, so I can point to it if I score a try or something. I’ll definitely be playing for Liam.”
He also reflected on his friendship with Liam:
“No, he was a good bloke. We lived together for four years and went to school together from year 9 to year 12.
“A legend bloke. A good footy player. I think he was on the verge of cracking NRL pre-season up there at Redcliffe.
“He was actually unlucky not to get a crack here after his pre-season at Tweed in 2021.
“But just happy as and lived life to the fullest. Never stressing about anything.
“We had a great time overseas together, which was pretty lucky.”
