Help yourself to a MANly 6 packId love it if someone actually did it!!

Good point.Watching the Fibros/Silvertails doco it is amazing how bitter Gibbs and O'Grady were nearly 30 years later. The old (Nick Lowe, also John Lennon and Groucho Marx) adage "Time wounds all heels" comes to mind.

O'Grady and Gibbs were a bit before my time unfortunately. The only thing I can remember seeing of either is when John Ribot scored that 65m intercept try in our 1982 KB Cup Final win over Newtown at Leichhardt. O'Grady chased but Ribot left him for dead.Good point.
