South Sydney Rabbitohs



The story that Steve refers to at Redfern Oval, and the stoush continued on in the tunnel, I believe it happened because when John Sattler got sent off, he knew he would be suspended and therefore would miss out on having played the most amount of games for Souths at the time.

He waited for the other guy and continued on in the tunnel until officials broke it up.

Also during the 1970 grandfinal where he had his jaw broken, McCarthy had a go at him about missing a tackle. Lurch O'Neill intervened and told McCarthy that Bucknell had broken Satts' jaw. On realising the enormity of Satts' injury, McCarthy lined up Bucknell and hit him with biggest full blooded front on tackle you have ever witnessed. In slow motion it looks awsome.

Macca later said 'I hit him front on, picked him, drove him backwards and dropped all of my 15 1/2 stone on top of him.
