Steve Liddell may seem like a typical knock about bloke, but dive into his story and you’ll uncover a very determined and inspired person who has at times placed his life in unthinkable danger for another humans survival.
In this podcast, we talk to Steve about his early years as a promising rugby star on a TSS scholarship before being told by his Doctor that he had formed Diabetes at the age of 14. This was compounded by his Father/mentor telling him that he had contracted kidney failure and dialysis, and that Steve would have to take care of his Mum and two sisters. Steve’s Mum would also be diagnosed with lung cancer and had only 12 months to live.
Steve played professional NRL in America for the Connecticut Wildcats and discovered Astroturf/synthetic grass, and aided in the understanding of this new style of playing field for the Australian market.
Steve recalls great times in the US but an even bigger surprise awaited him on return to Australia when Steve did the extra ordinary thing of pulling an unconscious motor accident victim out of a burning car before it exploded, and was awarded the human spirit award Western Australia.
In this podcast, we talk to both Ned & Fraser who are travelling around Queensland meeting potential customers and visiting Bunnings Warehouses, where Tuff Turf retail a range of products.
Fraser, a St Kilda Saints legend who played 145 games for the Saints and 115 games for the West Coast Eagles, and well known as the G-TRAIN, talks about his professional AFL sporting career with some rememberable playing highlights.
Now as the Co-Founder and Managing Director of Tuff Group, Fraser’s interest in synthetic turf grew as a need for a diverse range of playing surfaces for sport in all weather conditions.
And Ned Coten who served on FIBA’s Competition Commission and has been a participant, administrator and Board Director in both professional and volunteer capacities within basketball over the past 35 years and now works as a marketing consultant for the Tuff Group.
