Stephen Harold Gascoigne
Profile

Nicknamed Yabba as a child because he was a "bit of a talker", he found fame as one of the game's most original barrackers. Tall and well built, he was a rabbit seller who the Sydney Morning Herald wrote "could be seen with his little pony and two-wheeled cart, driving round Balmain and the neighbouring suburbs, loudly calling out, 'Rabbo, wild rabbo !' in a voice that could be heard a mile away!"
