79 wasn't one of our greatest years nor was 80.
I actually compare them to our last 3 years.
And we came out of it on the right side like we will this time.
Just watching that I reckon the saints try where the bloke juggles the ball would be pulled up today.
A lot was let go to allow the continuity of the game to flow.
And look at the crowd.
The only blight was scrums .
Give me that footy any day...
I was at that game, for an hour Manly dominated the competition leaders and eventual premiers and were overwhelmed by a great team. Our team was suffering a premiership hangover and they never got going that season. Magical memories all the same!
