Old wounds not healed… Just in case the Tigers needed anymore reason for winning this weekend, I felt it was worthy to sight a paragraph from nrl.com about the dogs v tigers. Go the tigers!
The Balmain Tigers and Canterbury Bulldogs squared off for all the marbles in the 1988 grand final, but the game will always be remembered for the sneaky high shot Dogs five-eighth Terry Lamb put on the Tigers’ brilliant English import Ellery Hanley. A badly dazed Hanley tried to return after a brief stint in the ‘head-bin’ but was done for the afternoon and played no part in the second half. The Dogs led 10-8 at half-time and went on to win 24-12. Lamb wasn’t penalised or cautioned in any way and the incident was only captured clearly by one television camera.
