Peter van Rijn, former coach-masseur for the "Trekvogels" in Holland, came to Australia in 1950. He joined the Commonwealth Bank as a cleaner, but soon began to practice massage in afternoons and evenings. In 1952 he became coach-masseur for the Dutch soccer club "Sydney-Austral", and in 1956 for the semi-professional soccer club "Hakoah". Recently, he was appointed teacher in physical culture at Sydney's Moriah College.
