Great to watch

Leichardt Oval is packed can't see an empty bit of space

- Benny Elias really was a great hooker both quick and creative
- Sironen should coach his kids on running hard he really was huge and pwoerful and ran so hard
- Blocker Roach had amazing passing game for a prop in those days
- Ginger Mick Neil was really a running half with a lot of the creative coming from Benny

Roach had a lot of pace for a guy his size too. Great side that year. Should have won the comp.
