Yes i was there in 1972 and in 1973 to see the boys win the 1st grade AND Reserve Grade Grand Final. In Reserve Grade there was Alan Thompson the 5/8 and future test player and Manly coach in 1980 and Max Krilich the immortal Kangaroo Captain in 1982. Also Good players like Allan Maddalena and Bobby Moses , Norm Pounder. Great Afternoon for a diehard Sea Eagle fan . I don't think we have done the "double" since.I was there that day , a very naive 18 year old country boy that knew no one , went by myself but still loved it!!
The one GF I missed , was 17 and my Dad told me I wasn’t old enough to travel on the train to Sydney and back for the game.
And this day in 1978 was our 11-11 drawn Grand Final with Cronulla, part of that epic finals campaign.
