My older brother will be spewing. Rolled his ankle and completely stuffed it in the final trials for The Magpies back in the 80's. He claims he ONLY ever wanted to play 1 x 1st grade game! :laughing:

I would love to have been there it would have been a great night. I still have my precious memories of watching the great players from Wests from nigh on 50 years ago onwards.
