I can’t find a link to the story, but during his playing days I remember a story about Roger’s partner going into labour, and while he was driving her to the hospital time was not on their side. Roger pulled over on the highway and delivered the baby himself.
It stuck with me, because if you could pick any player from Freo’s history to deliver a baby on the side of the road, he would have to be one of the first picked: cool in a crisis, safe hands, and a big warm smile perfect for welcoming someone into the world.

Only Roger could have done it. He weaved the car, did a blind turn, dodged four cars, two SUVs and a semi. All by warping the time space continuum. Time stood still while he maneuvered the car through a small space to an empty parking bay. Then moving so fast that his hands were a blur, that baby was delivered in record time. Then he did a lap of the car with both baby and Roger showing that famous smile!
What a champ.
