Palmer, Geoff I taught Geoff at Secondary School where he excelled at all sports. He played fly half in my under 13 Rugby team and dropped a goal in only his second match. I was the referee and has he ran back past me he asked if he had scored. He had been watching the Rugby league on the TV and had seen someone do a drop kick.
