City Origin vs Country Origin, SFS 1991Yes, 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.
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.
