Yes, you are correct. I seem to remember at the time & also watching an Origin replay where the three Manly players were in one game together. Maybe it was for City rather than NSW? Don't think Cliffie was selected in Country teams.
City Origin vs Country Origin, SFS 1991

The City scrum base trio was Cliffy at 5/8, Tooves at half and Des at lock. Other Manly players in the side were Snoz (wing) and Roberts (prop). No Manly player selected for Country, though Cement was in the back row but he was playing for Wests at the time.

City won 22-12. ET (2), Brandy and Smith scored tries, Snoz kicked 3/5 goals.

The full game played on Anzac Day back in the days where you only pulled out of City vs Country if you were legitimately injured, not the farce it later became.

Thank you very much for this information. A lot of memorable names in those two teams. The composition of a current CIty v. Country match up would be interesting.

In a much-needed piece of good news for NSW fans, rugged lock Jake Trbojevic has won the Youi Tackle of Origin award for 2020.

Trbojevic turned in one of his trademark low, driving tackles in Origin II in Sydney. It was one of the high points of NSW's only win of the series.

The Manly and Test star received just over 30 per cent of the vote, with Queensland centre Dane Gagai finishing second and third with a pair of efforts over the opening two matches.
