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.

I would love get my hands on St George v Sharks of the early 80s first time I went to Jubilee, what an experience the Sharks beat them that day but what I do remeber from the game is the blood that was rushing down Craig Young’s face.

Surprised we cant watch full length games from 1997 to 2009. All of these games should be available

Also would love to see more games the 1963 to 79 pre VHS archives

Or how many games were filmed before this

Surprised that the 69 GF is not available as a full replay

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.

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 )

Another great game to watch is Cronulla vs Easts at Endeavour in 1987, Joe Lydon where he blasts through from dummy half then side steps to score one of the best tries ever, Craig Salvatori's first grade debut and also scores a try to get them back in the match and Steve Morris bagged a double. Easts had some great but heart stopping wins in 1987.

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.

I sat on the bench seats on the fence, SE end.

Cronulla vs Easts at Endeavour 1987.

Joe Lydon's stunning try, Mark McGaw's try wasn't to shabby either, Steve Morris grabbing a double and Craig Salvatori's first grade debut with a try and also a great set up for Morris's second try. What a game to be at.
