Yeah, far out footy was better those days.

Mick Neil celebrating his try like he scored and clearly missed :lol:, Rex Mossop got upset he said " I don't appreciate the Balmain players celebrating that Try like Geeses when he clearly missed " :lol:

I always wondered what ever happened to happy ...
He must be in his mid 50's by now ?!

Last I heard he was working as a console operator at a fast food restaurant up north somewhere ?!

Our boys should watch that game and learn from their kicking game. Nothing short of brilliant.

Mick Stone was a top notch ref too. Unlike today's jokers.

They could make a decision on the spot and 95 times out of 100 they will get it right .
Who needs a Referee these Days when everything gets sent upstairs anyway , they have no confidence in any decision and every game is a Penalty fest except for Origin games.

True - I really miss the 5m rule, no vid ref and rough, tough honest hard men days.

Yes well I'm sure it would have been ok if it was Manly. For some reason that old fossil hated Balmain. Dreadful commentator - I'd rather Rabs or Bolts Hadley.

Clearly you've forgotten the 85 semi against the Dogs or other instances when he robbed us blind. Greg McCallum was much better.

Nope don't remember that. But he was pretty well respected from memory. I'd take stone over these pelicans today.
