Used to Love the Moose's footy show on a Sunday morning, never missed a second of it.

Yes same here mate. Ferris Ashton, Alan Clarkson, Col Pearce, Noel Kelly - they were true greats of the game and all the chat was about the game, not the off field stuff they crap on about today.

Careful Chad, didn’t Dave Chamberlin retire 1980 when tried were 3 points and went to 4 points in 1983

Unfortunately I think it is only 2nd half highlights in which we scored a measly two points!

But it's great to see how the old game was played. :)

Great memories - I was there that day.

The ETT try was simply amazing - raw speed - something that cannot be coached .

Also faultless goal kicking from Sean Watson - a very good toe poker .

Yes mate, I think you're right. Maybe it wasn't 4-0 then, but all I know is we scored first early and then Manly thrashed us and we didn't score another point!

I'll see if I can find the game details online.

Another player who was not a great but a very very good footballer for several seasons - Mark Wakefield.

Waka was improving so fast before being on the end of a savage act of foul play and was never the same again ...

Yep agree on that.

Pretty sure that happened at Belmore?

Some good names there mate but you can’t have a premiership winning halfback in your failed potential team. It just isn’t on ok.

I predict that one day you and CT are going to be room mates in the same nursing home.

Bit hard on Scotty Porter and Dane Westen. That Tautai however would be the Worst Bumbler in the BWB of ALL time. He should be an emergency like when they name 21- he should be 21!

Yea I dunno if I can think of a worse Sharks player who played more than just a game or 2 than TT - he was so ****ing bad, like all time bad. scored a try once though

what about KFCuthbo - was meant to be amazing, his career Sharks highlight was an offload

why not? shane perry was in brisbanes

chad was a junior roo, junior nsw half and has played no rep games and is the second least deserving half to win a premiership behind perry

he hasnt evolved since he was 22
