YARN OF THE MONTH #18 ..... (original entry date) 01/09/2006.


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

Just a quick note here. This is where Quigs selects the best "Your Story" received for the month or a selection of a favorite older yarn - no correspondence will be entered into and the winner gets bugger all.
All yarns are unsubstantiated and are posted in good faith. Its just meant to be a fun thing, share some of our great memories from the Greatest Era of the Greatest Game of All.



On the 29th july 2006 The Mighty Magpies, the old Western Suburbs Warriors held their Annual Reunion at Pratten Park. Tony Lewis, of www.noelkellyskids.info was kind enough to send "The Biff" some great pics from the night. It looks like many a great old match was replayed during the reunion. No exaggerations, no untruths, just straight honest reminiscing..

Good on you Maggies... (thanks Tony) ... some of the Biff Hardmen and Heroes were in attendance and have links off their names.

The story of the England - NSW brawl in 1954 was so big that it made the front page of all major Sunday papers. This is how the Sun Herald showed the notorious day.
