1975 ???


Manly v Cronulla, Brookie, 1975 or thereabouts.

Cronulla had a real hot dog lock forward, Greg Pierce, an athlete of the first order and a deserved international.

Pierce was tearing Manly up on the fringe of the ruck and was nearly single-handedly turning the game towards the Sharks.

I was standing on the Eastern fence when "Igor" Randall decided that enough was enough. He stood back a bit extra from the ruck and when Pierce got the ball and was about to do his steppy, brushing stuff........ WHACK!!! a perfectly legitimate tackle under the ribs that I could hear and feel.

The crowd when "oooohh" then fell into an awed silence.

For the next twenty minutes, Pierce was a passenger, he just trotted around the field and dry retched a few times.

Then he started to recover and went looking for the ball again.

Igor shook his head in bewilderment - hadn't this bloke learned anything.

Same play - Igor hit him again with a legitimate tackle, just under the ribs that was just as hard as the earlier one.

Pierce lay on the ground for a long, long time while play went on.

I cannot recall if he went off the field then, but he played no further effective part in the game.

Manly won. Thanks to Igor
