Quigs - Remarks and a Story on Ryan by John Sattler.


Told to me in 1990


I remember sitting behind the paddo end goalposts of the SCG whenthe Ryan Lead Canterbury Berries (were they still Berries then) ended the 11 year run of Saints. Ryan was Captain of the side. It was the year me Sharkies joined the comp. 1967.

We had a sports night up here (Emu Park, coast Central Queensland) in early 1990 and Satts was asked who was the toughest player he had played against and you guessed it, the name Kevin Kandos Ryan was mentioned. Sattler told the story of how he was lining up a young Canterbury winger who he knew was about to step inside and unsuspectingly into his path. Satts told it like this. He was about gorilla this unsuspecting inexperienced winger when he heard the voice he recognized as Ryan running a few paces behind him.

" I wouldn't do that if I was you " boomed the voice. Satts then decided he would tackle the winger in the contempory manner for respect of his own well being because he knew that Ryan would get even at some stage later inthe game.

The great man Sattler who had to prove his toughness to no man had that much respect for Ryan and his ability to legally inflict pain through his ferocious tackling that he changed his mind and style.
