He is the secretary of Cronulla Sutherland Junior Rugby League, and junior team footy coach at the Engadine Dragons.

His full-time occupation is working in the income protection industry.

O’Shea’s actual work title is lengthy: Rugby League Player Protection (presidential wealth management authorised representatives of M3 corporate AFSL244252).

That equates to income protection for rugby league and rugby union players through the big insurers.

“This covers people on and off the field, 24 hours a day, seven days a week,” he said. “Cover is as low as $1 a day and covers you for accident and sickness from day one of any accident.”

For the past five years O’Shea, 35, has run RLPP and assists more than 200 players in their time of need through income protection policies; the website is: rlpp南京夜网.au.

O’Shea grew up in Sutherland Shire and had played rugby league since he was a boy.

“I started playing when I was four,” he said. “I played all of the junior representative footy with the Sharks and finished my career in 1996 with the Illawarra Steelers.

“I was contracted for a few more years but chose to walk away. I don’t know why — it seemed like a good idea at the time.”

The former Australian schoolboy representative also captained NSW under- 15s and under-17s teams and led the Sharks SG Ball Cup team in his playing days.

“I just love rugby league and my Sharkies; I always had my bedroom painted blue, black and white when I was a child,” he said.

O’Shea is not only junior league secretary and insurance chairman but proud coach of the Engadine Dragons under-10s’ team.

“I give my time volunteering for the junior league and make sure all of the claims are paid for player insurance,” he said.

The RLPP insurance cover includes former NRL players, local A grade footballers, Queensland Cup players and players involved in competitions all over Australia.

“I was also the proud sponsor of the first Vanuatu rugby league team which came second in the World 9s’ competition, and I’m also affiliated with Burleigh Bears in Queensland,” he said.

Having the support of family and good health are the most important things in his life.

“Health is my priority, my children and my wife.”

O’Shea said his business goal was to make sure everyone who played rugby league heard about RLPP at some stage.

“Many players who are married, have kids and or have a mortgage risk it week in week out,” he said.
