    Hey All

    Can anyone tell me who was in the team of 1981.

    We came fifth, beaten by Newtown in the semi's who eventually got done by Parramatta.

    I was there that day - was the biggest and longest fight in the history of the game. The week before we drew with Parra in the last game at Cumbo 28 - all and we were tipped to trouble them.

    As I remember we had Eadie at FB, Dorahy was one centre, Thompson was five-eighth, Randall was in the pack and Broadhurst was one front rower with Krilich the hooker.

    Basically Newtown took Manly in a fight to put us off our game and were wildly successful. We lost the fight and the game, did not play any footy till late in the second half when our class showed but we were outfoxed. It is history that the Warren Ryan coached Jets went to make the grand final fairytale run but were beaten in the last 20 mins by a Sterling Kenny inspired Eels to win their first premiership.

    The next two years the Phil Blake inspired Eagles were the victims of the same combination.
