Is Mark Geyer a total grub?

Can remember an Under 18 state game where Andrew Gee made an absolute mess of him in an all in brawl

Geyer had half his ear torn off and Gee had beaten the bejesus out of him

He wasn’t half as tough as his persona made out

toughness has nothing to do with proficiency. Plenty of people are too tough for their own good. Will vs skill…

Well as I used to argue with King Sirro …if you go back and look at how many times Geyer would miss games v Brisbane … I rest my case

Why don’t you go back and provide the facts hap

Brisbane came into the NSWRL in what 1988?

1988 (Penrith): he played them twice (played 21 of 22 games)
1989 (Penrith): he played them once (played 21 of 24 games)
1990 (Penrith): he played them three times (played 12 of 25 games)
1991 (Penrith): he didn’t play them (played 14 of 24 games)
1992 (Penrith): he played them once (played 7 of 22 games)
1993 (Balmain): he didn’t play them (played 13 of 22 games)
1995 (Reds): he didn’t play them (played 15 of 22 games)
1996 (Reds): he didn’t play them (played 10 of 21 games)
1997 (SL Reds): he played them once (played 8 of 18 games)
1998 (Penrith): he played them once (played 8 of 24 games)
1999 (Penrith): he played them once (played 9 of 24 games)
2000 (Penrith): he played them twice (played 23 of 26 games)

Played them 12 times in 12 seasons.

Andrew Gee:

1989: Played Penrith twice
1990: Played Penrith three times
1991: Played Penrith once
1992: Played Penrith once
1993: Played Balmain once
1995: Played the Reds once
1996: Played the Reds once
1997: Played the Reds twice
1998: Played Penrith twice
1999: Played Penrith twice

Played Penrith 16 times in 10 seasons (he didn’t play 1988 or 2000.)

So they would have met 8 times in 10 seasons, hardly ducking him.

100% pussy …agreed
Although the majority of your stories have holes in them lol

Geyer is a show pony.
Famous for what… having some words with Wally.

Didnt wanna swing tho.
Absolutely pathetic.

Nah, he was a good player and hit hard on the field. Two things can be true and once and its possible that Gee was tougher.

Geyers career seems totally transparent to me. He WAS a very good, tough hard player bt it seems to me clear that his life went off the rails off the field (which he has been pretty open about) which is not unreasonable given what happened to his brother in law. Seems to me his off field life impacted his on field life which resulted in the Western Reds/Umina/Tigers part of his career.

As I stated earlier, he was rubbish except for that one game for Balmain when it all came back to him in a beautiful moment at Leichhardt.

What attachments? I took it all down from Rugby League Project’s website.

Why didn’t you just say that Gee smashed him that time and had him in his pocket?

I don’t drink with him, I said he frequented my old local and said he was a nice bloke to have a chat with and that I’d never seen him cause any trouble there. And even if I did drink with him, I’m not 12 and wouldn’t feel the need to have one over a bloke who has probably done more for his community than I ever will.

Crazycat was that the game when Geyer rattled Wally’s cage? He was following instructions. Anyway, what happens on the field in the heat of battle stays out there.

it may have been.
I missed the Wally shot. But a winger/center was in a tackle and Geyer smacked him hard around the neck area.

I get it, the coach may have said hit hard and start something. I just saw it and it was the cheapest shot you could imagine on a player.

Geyer was definitely a grub.

But he was excellent at playing that role. He knew how to get under an opposition’s skin and create confusion, especially in the middle.

We have some great up and coming talent in 2020 and I’m happy with how Madge and Co have built our pack so far.

I don’t really like the bloke but he was doing his job. Comes across as a peanut but an origin great none the less.

Ok I am a NSW fan. I go for them and hey being a Wests Tigers fan it has trained me to barrack for the underdog.

The local Gym was showing an old State of origin match. I couldn’t pick which one, it had Allan Langer, Mal Maninga, Wally, etc. I think Laurie Daily was 5/8 and you could tell it was from the 89-91 era.

Man Mark Geyer was just awful. He would start scrapping over nothing regularly, everyone else was playing ball, he just wanted to throw punches. He was tackling a winger or Center and king hit the guy hard. Then the biff came and he was separated behind a few in the NSW pack. It was one of the dirtiest moves I have seen in Rugby league ever. The guy he hit had his arms pinned in a tackle. If this is the spirit of Origin count me out, it was a coward punch if I ever saw one.
I only know it was Geyer because the Jersey said Geyer. I know his brother played too, but I am pretty sure it’s the mmm Mark.

Over this guy entirely.

If you don’t like coward grubby stuff don’t watch old Australia v Great Brittain test matches then. 😆
