Manly v Norths 21/8/1948 Rd18

Bencher
Yes, 1948, no video but the results speak for themselves. Manly's 2nd season in the competition. Only 18 rounds in a season and what a novel idea, each team plays each other twice in the season proper.
As Manly supporters, we are proud of never winning the dreaded wooden spoon. Boy, we tried hard. Didn't look good at the start of 2021, 0 and 4 at the start of the season, 1999, 0 and 7 at the start of that season and 2018 finishing 2nd last and 2 pts clear of Parramatta. Both teams finished the season with 3 straight losses.
In 1948, after 17 rounds Norths (the big brother) were 2nd last (9th) on 8 pts and Manly last (10th) on 7pts.The last round, round 18 Manly v Norths. A promoters dream!

What must have been an enthralling match, Norths posted 2 tries to Manly's 1 try and the match was not decided until the last minute of the match.
