courtesy of Tony Adams great book The Hitmen - A tribute to League's tough guys.

"Touring with the "Roos was great, even though they put us in low-class hotels back then. One section of the pub we stayed in we called 'Surrey Hills'; you wouldn't go there after dark. Tim Pickup, Terry Randall, Tom Raudonikas and (journalist) Bill Mordey hung out there, and one night they had a water fight. Someone ended up bringing in a fire hose and the whole floor collapsed. The management nearly went crazy.

Bob McCarthy went up the fire escape one day just for a laugh and it disintergrated under his weight. he was lucky he didn't kill himself.

They were great days, but they went to bloody quick.
