Easy to buy into something that was true. We were treated as second class by the league and Manly absolutely thought they were better than us. Would of been amazing to of been at that trial match in Melbourne in 78.

Funny thing is that with everyone remembering all this we all forget that Wests were actually a very good side through those years not just a bash them side. Masters was a genius at knowing when to let it rip and when to calm things down and play the poor us hand.

How good was the O Grady no try, scoring of his own kick but being called off side. Hartley was a goose.

It's amazing how all the decisions went Manlys way. The O'Grady no try, the 7th tackle try debacle against Parra .... He was the biggest cheat ever. I think he used to train with Manly at one time.

to this day, this still infuriates me, and fuels the fire of my hatred towards Manly and Hartley.

Wests were a bloody good side alright. Most teams actually feared playing them in those days - they were very intimidating. Wish our guys could get an aura like that happening now.

Don't know if they were treated as second class by the league though - I think old Roy has a lot to answer for, putting ideas in people's heads :lol:
Sooner or later, next year has to be this year - Ricksen
