Ive posted this elsewhere before but I was at that game - my first season as a Parra season ticket holder, jumping on the bandwagon after the 86 premiership...little did I know we were just starting the mother of all droughts - but I digress....How good was Sterlo ?
We had a few injuries, with Kenny, Lindner, Grothe etc out. I seriously have never heard of Rod Slater.

Nope, Bookends Leabeater and Budgen both debuted in 1979 and joined Parramatta in '86 and '82 respectively.Hhahaah, I remember him... then i guess the bookends came afterwards

Leabeater retired at the end of '88 having only played a handful of games that year and Bugden retired at the end of '89. Injury played a big part in Budgen's career and he actually retired for 2 years before making a comeback in 1985.
