    to clear up Q8 and remove ambiguity read it as such:


    which team was the last team not to score a try in a gf and what was the year and score.

    3. Ben Kennedy
    4. Artie Beetson (surprisingly - you would have thought it would have been one of the speedy backs as many of them scored in the 38-0 Rout!)
    13 Phil Blake scored the first try in the 82 GF from a bomb and then it was all downhill from there!
    16 Chicka Ferguson scored in both Canberra's wins - saw them both live - the one in 89 was sensational as it levelled the scores once Mal converted.
    17 Flannery scored the second last try and then Fletcher scored to make it embarrassing.
    19 Winger Eddie Lumsden played 5 games for Manly in 1955 and then went on to star for St G, scoring hat-tricks in the 59 and 61 GFs. He also scored tries in the 57 and 58 grand finals and went on to play in nearly all of the 11 in a row!
    20 Craig Wing and Stacey Jones both scored in the 2002 GF.

    Good quiz Sue.
