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.

The 1981 Final was played at the famous Sydney Cricket Ground on the 13th September between Newtown and Manly.

The match was won by Newtown and allowed them the right to face the Jack Gibson coached Parramatta in the Grand Final. (See memorable matches No24)

The final will always be remembered for the notorius all in brawl with the main combatants Newtowns Steve Bowden and Manly hardman Mark Broadhurst. Bowden was marched for the incident and was unable to take part in the Grand Final.
