    Heard a song on the radio and they mentioned a Guy who was having a birthday who had the same name as an old saints player.
    Wonder how many old players of that era we can come up with who we forgot.
    Kurt Landers,David Nui, Ian Herron.
    Stuart Coupland,Jason Hoogerwerf,Matt Fuller.just to name a few.

    Anybody that saw Martin play would never forget his try scoring feats.
    Way too good a player to be in the list as proposed.

    Does anyone recall Shane Kelly, a no nonsense prop from Brisbane?

    Not a bad player.

    He extended his tenure in order to press his SOO claims only to fall into obscurity within 12 months. If memory serves me correctly, his career was severely curtailed by injury (something to do with his kidneys)?

    Kelly was also “famous” for being lambasted by Rex Mossop for not “putting in” when his game stats demonstrated he had a blinder.

    I also thought another ex Queenslander, Cameron Wade, was a talented three-quarter who was never given much of an opportunity by Brian Smith.

    And, who could ever forget Clinton Mohr’s shoulder pads, which prevented him from catching kicks? A barrister by trade, the only other one of his ilk I can recall is Kevin Ryan.

    The premise of the thread is either late 80s or early 90s. Given Price played his few games for Saints in 1997, he doesn’t qualify for either criteria.

    Try again.

    Steve Robinson was one of my favourites growing up. Sharp little 5/8.
    Billy Noke was another favourite.
    Does anybody remember Mark Blackburn? If my memory is correct he was punted from the club after he threw his Jersey into the crowd after being replaced. Possibly in a reserves game...

    Correct.

    What does the thread’s title say though?

    Try a third time.

    I don’t care what the thread’s title says..

    I’m trying to work out 1997 wasn’t the late 90’s?

    No deflection..

    Price was at the Dragons in the early 90s.. He didn’t make 1st grade till 1997..

    Now, back to you..

    How is 1997 not the late 90’s? Do you see it more as mid 90’s or is it more of an pre-early noughties?
