I just saw ep 1 and i am honestly blown away by that. The content is gold.
Yeah just finished watching it myself and it was good viewing. Poor old Sauaso was broken at Palm Beach, but those are types of challenges the team needs to show that they're fitter than they think, and stronger than they think.

To view their first day back driving through a early morning sydney, ivan first meeting with them and the sand warrior speaking is a privlage. Could watch all day. Really really good content.

I watched episode 2 first and thought it was just a Benji documentary. Then I watched episode 1 and I absolutely loved it for the same reasons you've mentioned.

I love this picture. My dad had it on the wall of his garage until I had to take it down a few years ago when they sold the property.

Exactly which year of the 70's would this have been taken?
A google image search reckons 78.
Yeh thats wrong that website.
Parish was at Penrith and I think Roy was coach in 78.
Im thinking this is 76 or earlier...Holman coached in 77
Yeah, agree with Ink, isn't 1978, changed the emblem in 78, think it might be 1976, players fit for both years, Dallas, Dorahy, Raudonikis, Giteau, Foster, Blyth, Purcell but O'Grady and Boyd (Boyd joined in 76) look too young for 78, and with Don Parish (coach 1974-76) on the right am certain it would be 76.
Good detective work fellas, I tried to do it but couldn't put a name to all the faces to match the teams lists from those years,

Thanks!

Hope this doesn't sound like a cheap shot, but...

anyone else not surprised that it was Sue that went down?

Just watched the 1st ep of this, great stuff - you can see the club has a vision for where they want to be with things like this.

Have only watched the first episode and it was a great insight, showed my mate who is a Broncos supporter and he loved it and wants me to tell him when they put more up.

Felt bad for Aloiai listening to him talk about his first 2 pre seasons and injuries affecting both of them with him missing out with injury this week.

4 months or so out from the start of this season and Fonua jokes that fitness isnt his strong point...4 months later and his fitness wasn't up to 1st grade standard. Disappointing lack of effort by him.
Can somebody organize a set of keys for MWZ to get into his own house?

The Sandhill Warrior shared Vintage Rugby League's photo.
August 12, 2015 ·
"These guys weren't just great Rugby League players - they were tough, hard & uncompromising. They knew how to step outside the comfort zone in training and playing! Yet, you would not find greater human beaings. Lessons in life I learnt from them - Respect, Loyalty, Team Spirit and treating others as equals. GREAT Club - GREAT guys! (and some of that $925mil might have bought some chairs for the front rows to sit on and maybe even a club shirt for the trainer...)"

Clear winners of the Your Club Competition - the Western Suburbs Magpies with over 300 votes, the Bulldogs, Storm, Sea-Eagles and Roosters also polled well. So Magpie supporters for the next week your boys from 1976 will grace our main timeline pic - congratulations.

The above is a post from the Sandhill Warrior himself on Facebook from a few years ago about those blokes in that exact picture some of you are talking about. He says it's from 1976 also, so you were correct. The pic is included in this post where is says "image may contain 14 people" but sorry didn't know how to copy it in here.

Watching this now via the Official WT website.

Great initiative that is really successful at re engaging ,e as a long time fan who as lowered expectations in the last few years (Not lowered commitment to my club).

The one thing that really jumps out at me is how poor and dilapidated everything looks, The rooms, the Sink, the whiteboard the blinds on the door when I freeze at 6:36 mark.

Maybe Im picky, My home is virtually spotless all the time even with a family of 7, When we are having guests around we make sure things are perfect.

Concord office Looks depressing bordering on derelict.

Just watched the final episode- man I’m 51 and was ready to play as they ran out!! Great insight and a fantastic way to bring fans into the inner sanctum.

The 4th episode was pure gold, it certainly made me feel closer to the current players.

I loved it!
