Hanley and Lamb reunite after 20 years
Phil Rothfield - The Sunday Telegraph, July 01, 2012



Watch the video....

TERRY Lamb and Ellery Hanley stroll on to the middle of the Sydney Football Stadium. They are here to reminisce about one of the dramatic grand final moments in rugby league history.

The day Canterbury legend Lamb knocked Tigers superstar Hanley out of the 1988 grand final in a back-play incident that became part of folklore.

Lamb puts out the same right hand that decked Hanley and says: "Ellery, the first thing I want to do is apologise."

And the champion Englishman was only too happy to accept it.

"I thought, what a lovely human being," Hanley said.

"The very first thing he did was put his hand out and said he wanted to say sorry for what happened on that day.

"I can't believe I've finally met Terry after 20-something years.

"It's been a pleasure meeting him, catching up and reminiscing over those years."

The pair talk for 10 minutes about the game and that moment. Lamb has only watched it once on video, about a year ago.

"Andrew Farrar tackles him, I went high, jumped up and I clipped him across the head," he recalls as Hanley listens.

"What you do on the field and what happens on the field stays there.

"I was quite nervous to meet Ellery for the first time. Everybody has reminded me for the last 24 years what I did."

They walk to the exact spot where the tackle occurred and pose for these exclusive photos.

Both decked out in their old team colours, of course.
