    A year after I was born, so never saw a replay of the game.

    TV Guide says the games on Fox 2 at 9.30pm tonight.

    Would love to see this brutal game. :D

    no idea, hopefully the one with plenty of biff.

    just read that manly played 5 finals games within 16 days (as the draws were repalyed 3 days later).

    Thats unheard of these days as Cammy Smith whinges about the toll origin takes on him.

    1973 GF Vs Sharks was arguably the most brutal game ever played.

    As for 1978, I still laugh when Steve Rogers misses a simple field goal near end of game - typical Shark choker. The replay was a beauty, Wombat & Frog eyes cut them to pieces

    What's the go with the touch finders and the scrum feeds? Couldn't work it out - one time sharks kicked it out on the full then had the scrum feed.

    scrum feed was decided by which half of the field you were in

    so if we're in our half we get the feed? Also no difference if it goes out on the full or not?

    The replay on the Wednesday was awesome. I was in 4th class and we watched it at school on a black and white tele. The one handed pass from steve knight to put gartner away was great.

    Everytime I see any Shark's merchandise or meet someone who identifies themselves as a Sharks' fan my day gets a little better because of the above point.

    Never change, Shire folk. Never change.

    The Sharks **** themselves in the GF. Then Wombat put them to the sword in the replay-we had plenty of injured troops too!!!!
    Probably our finest moment as a club guys :)

    Gotta love the Wombat!!!!
