Easts v Cronulla at Henson 1987 is another game worth getting a hold of. Easts winning a very entertaining match despite having a player sent off.There are some matches i remember being at years ago that i would love to see again.
St George vs Easts at Kogarah 1980, after an ordinary start to the season Easts were just starting to find a bit of form but i remember a horrible mix up between Ian Schubert and Kerry Boustead that lead to a try for Steve Morris, i think Tony Trudgett's try came off an East error also but Noel Cleal and Barry Andrews scored great tries for Easts and the game ended in a draw.
St George vs Easts at Kogarah 1982, Saints led 15-9 with 11 minutes to go but Easts came roaring back with 3 tries to win 22-15.
Penrith vs Easts 1983 at Penrith Park-Kevin Hastings and Marty Gurr gave a Penrith a masterclass in torrential rain to win 17-0.
Penrith vs Easts 1987 at Penrith Park - Tony Melrose kick a 45 mtr field goal to give Easts a one point win.
Both the St George vs Roosters games were on Saturdays so would have been televised, the games against Penrith were Sundays and weren't televised but would love to see those games again after being at them live.
Try conversion to win the match from the sideline after the full time siren, yeh? Went through a pack of Winnies in that game. Ran to the mound where Smith converted and poured some of the sand in my ciggies pack for a souvenir. Didn’t take all of it cos some kids wanted to attempt some kicks from it. I’m such a dickhead lol.Yes have a copy of that game, Wayne Challis was sent off, Easts won 24-22. That was the second game at Henson where David Smith had pressure conversions to win the match ( the other was against Canterbury a couple of weeks earlier )
