On that Magpies-Bears game, the week following that game they took Andrew Willis out to the same spot he kicked the field goal to get him to try and kick it again. Had about a dozen shots and didn't land one.

Best Magpies game i ever attended.

There were a few guys we had over the years who would make a promising cameo and disappear. Back in the day, unless you were the ABC game, you'd have to rely on the paper or Rugby League Week. I'd read about some hot new half that we had (I remember Richard Smith getting raves after we beat Norths by 30), but they'd be dropped by the time we got our next TV game.
