In this time Bell developed a cult following among rugby league fans because of his tiny frame and his skinny (even relative to his body) legs. At 65 kg Bell was even smaller than Preston Campbell (74 kg), another Aboriginal player famed for his slight frame. His ability to tackle players twice his size was seen as a throwback to the days of Norm Provan and Arthur Summons.
