Just wanted to add to the Peter Dimond legend and correct what I think is an error in some stories of the Fr John Cootes incident.

The match was at the Sportsground of that I am certain. My recollection is that the great man ran at least 20yds to come in as a late tackle and hung one on the footballing priest.

Peter Dimond was the toughest and most honest of the hard men who played in the real tough era. The Poms could play and knuckle in those days and they just couldn't handle him at all - never bested.

I had the privilege of having a conversation with him some years ago at Campbelltown - a gentleman in every sense of the word, a legend by deed and a champion by nature.
