Title: ... (mm04) - BATTLE OF LEEDS 1970 WORLD CUP FINAL - comments from Aussie Player John Cootes

I was a relatively untried international when Australia contested the World Cup Final, and I remember being quite "unsettled" about the fact that someone had told me that I was marking the Great Britain Welterweight Boxing Champion in Syd Hynes at centre. 

I remember that John O'Neill, our Australian front row forward, had seventeen stitches inserted in his leg after the game.  It was, indeed, as the tabloids labelled it the "Batte of Britain" revisited, but I am happy that I was a member of the Australian team that eventually won "the battle".
