    Manly Vs Souths 1987 great to see two of my favourite oldschool ball players Lyons and Coleman thought some might enjoy the link.

    Great to watch, some interesting points are clear from it

    1 - Referreeing was as bad then as it is now and only made worse by video
    2 - Commentators were better then, they called the game, was that Moose calling the game?
    4 - The game is much better to look at now than it was then.
    5 - The game was tougher then

    20 min is the close to the best try you will ever see from a second rower

    It was Moose, and I think the other commentator is Graeme Hughes.

    Gibbs was actually a second rower. Was that Ian Roberts that was chasing him for the try.

    yes it was, didn't they say gibbs was a centre-come-forward?

    As for Moose, there was none of the fluff and carry on that goes on now. They called the game as they saw it and didn't try to impose their knowledge and opinion on anyone, he was fair in his assessment of the officiating as he saw it.

    Manly were robbed of two tries by that ref

    They didn't try to impose betting odds ad nauseum either.

    I think Andrew Moore is one of the best commentators currently and prefer the continuous call team to the TV, it's just a shame that the TV and Radio don't sync up exactly anymore

    There are times i can't stand Graeme Hughes opinions other times i fully agree with him but as a Rugby League caller i loved his work on 10.

    On a side note i loved the music during the replay of every try(a few were used)-----i use to go in the back yard and replay the moves in slow motion with ball in hand singing the tune out loud and commentating on my brilliance also lol.

    Before marriage it's about quantity, after marriage is quality
