    A rugby league player . . . but who? here's some clues:
    I've played for NSW.
    I've played in a grand final.
    I played for Manly in a premiership year - but didn't do the victory lap.
    I played for Australia.
    I'm even a Manly junior!
    Who am I????

    I can think of a few that meet almost all those points - the stumbling block is being a Manly junior.

    It's trivia - you are supposed to guess! If no-one can get it I'll give more clues  :)

    All right all right, here's your clue.
    No he never played against Manly (although someone in his family did).

    Bonus clue: he played a total of eight seasons at Manly, but he wasn't a regular first grader in his final year.

    Probably some tricky terminology used by SER8 and it might be someone like Mal Cochrane.  Played for NSW Country and got kneed in the head in the 87 GF and maybe didn't do the lap? Born in Taree but we were his first NRL club. I'm clutching here :)

    No it was '73...

    His son played for Illawarra for a couple of years.

    Yes that's him MB, a blast from the past.

    Bill Bradstreet
    1964-1970, 1973. Lock
    Manly junior and the son of former Norths forward Fred Bradstreet, gave great service to the Sea Eagles, playing in the 1968 Grand Final loss to Souths. Bill played one test for Australia against England in 1966 and represented NSW 3 times in 1966-67. In 1971 he captain-coached Port Kembla before returning to Manly in 1973. His son Darren played first grade for Illawarra. His son Shaun played cricket for NSW.

    not sure why I can't do the picture, but you can see him on that link

    haha yes, and he was a good player I'd say. Not sure why he wasn't in the '70 GF, he may have been injured. And of course after that we had a rather high profile import Mal Reilly filling the lock spot. I don't think Bill appeared much in 1st grade in '73, but he may have filled in on occasion.

    Imagine if someone in his family married into the family of former Chief Justice Lawrence Street, they could have a son and name him...

    Brad Bradstreet-Street.

    ... ah, the off-season  :)

    Was Bill Bradstreet the player who broke Sattlers jaw in the 1970 GF?
