Frank Healey played rugby league with Wests from 1908 until 1910. During his first two years with the Club, he played in Reserve Grade. In 1910 Wests used thirty eight players in First Grade. There was a high attrition rate due to injuries and players not continuing to play.

By the end of the season, Wests had to coopt a number of players from Reserve Grade and the junior competition to fill its ranks. Frank Healey received his chance in round twelve and played the final three rounds of the competition.
