Had to beat the Storm and the refs for that one!
So sweet though!
Does anyone know why Marshall was at fullback for that flick try assist to pat in the grand final? Was quite young back then
He was defending on the wing which he did a lot throughout that year…Hodgson fielded the ball…it was a well known tactic that the Cows were putting players on the deck after passing…same thing happened …Hodgo passed to Benji the defender continued onto him allowing Marshall space…Marshall skips away Marshall Skips away…the rest is history…
I could be wrong (I usually am) but IIRC the needles in Richards’ ankle were wearing off too, so he got Benji to go back to help out. Thought I heard that in an interview from Richards. My memory ain’t great though.
