The Ampol Cup

I think you meant “Amco Cup” - Ampol sponsored Soccer in the late 50s to mid 80’s before becoming Caltex.

Doh… hahahahaha

Has anyone sighted a Caltex servo that has been rebranded Ampol yet? I believe it was supposed to be happening by now.

I remember the Ampol Ads back in the late 60’s or 70’s when we had lots of petrol strikes and fuel shortages and their slogan was “why go past Ampol” and the reply was, “because they’ve got no bloody petrol!”

see what i mean …wrong season lol …for some reason i had it in my head that my Brisbane Wests and Wests won titles the same year …any chance to have a dig Brisbane and Sydney Easts lol

Nobody running off Dallas at 4 minutes. Would have scored for sure. Anyway, we pack a scrum in 15 seconds. Lol. These blokes running around out there now had nothing on the 70s fellas.

And missing that kick at goal - i nearly hit the roof when i jumped for joy.

Origin is going to suck this year. No way will the quality be as good. Most won’t have played a game for nearly 4-6 weeks.
