Mid 80's


I'm a pom but Wally is my favourite player of all time, no doubt. Watched him in internationals carve up us poms and the Kiwis many a time.

That mid 80's Test was played when I was about 10 or 11 but I still remember Wally's hit on " The baby faced Assasin " Tutta. Tutta was quite a tough nut and from what I remember, was trying to dish it out to the Aussies, especially Lewis. Wally decided to extract a little retribution and proceded to absolutely smash Tutta in a pearler of a hit. Goddam nearly killed him. I thought, yeah, that is what football is all about. (See story No5 from Paul Jones)

That's one of the reasons why Wally was one of the best ever. If the situation needed a bit of tough stuff, Wally could mix it up with the hardmen. However, he could also defeats teams with his amazing skills. His running strength, passing ability or his kicking game combined with his toughness made him a champion player.

You're right about Rugby League nowadays Quigs. Too bloody soft.
