Terry Randall 68 today.
My hero is getting on.
Not a player before or since comes close to the art of destruction that this bloke brought to the game.
Perfect tackler in every sense.
Happy birthday big fella...

Really wish I could have seen him play, but Iโ€™m a bit young for that.

Going on what everyone says he was brutal in every sense of the word.

The old grainy footage that kicks around just doesnโ€™t do him justice.

Best thing to do mate is get a look at fibros v silvertails and there is a tackle he does on Dallas Donnelly that will tell the story.
It's unbelievable.

When the going got tough Terry kept going until the opposition was done and the game was there to be won for Manly .
The player with Steel Sea eagle wings . I read some old Rugby League Week magazines and Terry was rated the most feared defender .
I hear he still looks fit enough to play as he still looks great in his birthday suit .


Played with Passion for his Manly Jumper
The Great IGOR !

Sadly his arthritis is 24/7 and all these enforces pay a lifelong price for our entertainment :(

Sad to hear but they tell me he still looks good for his age even with arthritis

Watched it a few times. Itโ€™s great viewing but I would have loved some modern day cameras like the ones that were on Matai when he would hit.

Matai, in my opinion, is the closest any player has come to the defensive excellence of Randall.
Especially in 2013.
I'm sure a couple of souffs blokes would agree.

Wonderful career for Manly and being in four premiership sides is a fitting tribute to his contribution and success there , Had the pleasure of meeting him once , true gentleman and a straight shooter . Manly legend .

Like a brick wall he was . Called him cement for good reason . The Incomparable Immortal added him to his grand final winning team
