MEMORABLE MATCHES #10

Get some more beers, or make another coffee, take your time and have some fun.

from Quigs "As mentioned previously, I am not a rugby league historian, a rugby league expert. I am just a lover of this era of Rugby League." ... This is a recollection of some of the battles, and the trench warfare that I, and others watched over time. Some are matches that I was told about, or read about.


MATCH SUMMARY Baths Babes victorious, Reddy goes Ballistic

After the historical first ever tied Rugby League Grand Final, the stage was set for the much anticipated replay. The game was held at the SCG on Tuesday, with 48.828 spectators in attendance.

St George under the guidance of the "old Fox" coach Harry Bath bustled, belted and blasted Parramatta off the field with some wild rough house play.

The Eels buckled under a St George onslaught that was totally uncomprising in its intensity.

Two tries, a penalty try, six goals and a field goal gave Saints a 22-0 victory.


Robert Stone scores Saints first try

In the game St George's International forward, Rod 'Rocket' Reddy went ballistic and copped at least four cautions during the game. In particular his run ins with the parramatta lock Ray Price. It was amazing that Reddy remained on the deck for the entire 80 minutes.



Rumour had it that Parramatta were instructed by their coach Terry Fearnley not to retaliate to any St George discretions and to turn the other cheek. According to reports of the match Fearnley angrily refutes these claims and stated that he never gave such intructions to his players.
