That Squeels side in the 80’s is one of the very best club team’s I have ever watched play league. I despise Parramatta for many reasons, but mostly because they broke my heart twice as a youngster. Nevertheless, losing to a side which featured Brett Kenny (should be an immortal) Sterling, Cronin, Ella, Grothe, Liddiard, Taylor, Edge, Bugden, Muggleton, Jurd, O’Reilly, Price et al, is no disgrace.1983 was a great year and as you said we won the premiership by the length of the straight and on the day anything can happen on the day and it did .
On the day one of the best coaches in the modern era Bellamy lost a grand final by a record margin of 40 points to nil where his star studded team consisting of devastating strike players like Inglis , Cronk , Slater and a young up and coming and destructive Folau could not manage one single try .
They are the last team to three peat, and they were a bloody terrific football team unfortunately.
