    Just a short one.

    Happy 61st birthday to none other than Graham "Wombat" Eadie :party:

    I wonder how many of us know that he was actually born in Lidcombe?

        Maybe I'm just showing my age but I still think he was our best ever fullback. Happy birthday Wombat.

          Always difficult comparing players from different eras. The roles and styles of play are so different now. But Wombat was far ahead the best fullback of his time, so he gets my vote.

            Its always difficult comparing players from different eras. Was Wombat better than Snake? Is Snake better than Wombat? They are easily they are the top 2 fullbacks we've ever had, and we've had good ones from Ron Willey to Bob Batty, Dale Shearer and Matthew Ridge.

            Both had/have their strengths and both had/have their weaknesses. If you could somehow combine the two of them into one fullback.......damn lol. Snake's pace and skill, Wombat's size and strength.......:rock:

              And for a bonus 10 points, who is the player behind Wombat in that picture?

                  Great days. Still in awe of the blistering pace of Wombat and Russell Gartner in those tries.

                    Pitty we couldn't get Eadie & Stewart to mate. Then we would have the fastest & strongest fullback of all time.

                        Happy birthday Wombat, I only vaguely remember the end of his career & he was still great then. Wish I had seen all of it.
