Title: ... p25 Memories of Peter Dimond decking Father John Cootes

I was at the City/Country game, at the SCG I think, when Peter (City) hit, for want of a better word, Father John (Country)

It was certainly not recieved well by the Country supporters with calls everywhere "send him off!!!

Most City supporters either cheered or just thought "OOPS", Father John was a very popular player even with City supporters.

It really came as no surprise to me when Peter Dimond was selected in the Australian team to play England, let's face it THIS WAS WAR!!

You Just don't leave one of your toughest soldiers at home.

Many years later I had the good fortune to meet Peter at a race meeting in Ballina in northern New South Wales.

I thought he was a gentleman who would not hurt a fly but after seeing him play many times and the size of his massive forearms I had no desire to test the theory at all.
