One of the best performances I can remember from a Saints man was not from an Immortal. It was a game from 'Lord' Ted Goodwin.

I was just a kid sitting in the mostly St George Sheridan Stand at the SCG for the semi against Manly in 1975. Ted scored a remarkable try by chipping ahead, and then regathering by juggling the ball on the fingertips of his vertical right arm - all while swerving around the Manly fullback Graeme Eadie - then pulling the ball in and winning the race to the Scoreboard Hill corner!

It remains one of the most remarkable and exciting tries that I have seen right to this day. Too bad backflips were not the done thing in this era.

Ted followed this great try up by rescuing Saints from great pressure with a series of line dropouts that bamboozled Ray Branighan. Twice Ted dropped the ball over Branighan's head and found touch and a third dropout landed short of Branighan, and bounced over his head head into touch.

Only the amazing "Lord Ted" could have come up with these plays.
