This is the story ,according to my memory at least , when Sattler left Sydney to play in Brisbane he apparently got a verbal send off by Bill Hamilton from Manly about Satts not being able to take it in Sydney anymore.

Come Interstate time Satts is wearing a Queensland jersey and Hamilton a blue one , don't remember time of game and place on the field but ball was heading downfield when Satts launches himself at Hamilton and has both feet off the ground as he lands the big right fist to the face of big bill .

From memory , there was a photo of the hit on the front cover of Rugby League Week along with one of two NSW trainers carrying Hamilton between them with his legs dragging along behind them . I don't believe it was an even a penalty to NSW , no trial by video in those days.

I'm not sure if Satts was too interested in playing for Queensland and he didn't play that well in the series but he certainly held a grudge and took the chance to answer the challenge.
