    Who was that gigantic half back they had about 20 years ago? He was as big as the front rowers. I wonder whatever happened to him.

    Not sure, but now I am trying to think of the halfback of their 1995 winning team when Calyess was player of the year. The half ran the show and all the hit ups were one off the ruck off his passes rather than off the dummy half passes. It was interesting coaching. Was Daniel Anderson coach of that team?

    I would've thought the guy I'm thinking of was earlier than Cayless. This guy was probably late 80s, early 90s. He must have played juniors for Parra. Maybe Daniel was his first name

    From my initial research it could have been David Bayssari, who ended up playing for the Tigers. Does anyone recall if he played half back for Parramatta Marist?

    I remember playing Parra Marist in our first round of the 95 Comm Bank cup at McCredie. They put 50 on us

    Dave Bayssari would have finished high school no later than '87 as I think he was either 1 possibly 2 years behind me. Big chance we went to Marist as his initial high school finished at the end of Year 10 in those days and most who did the HSC moved to Marist.

    The first time I became aware of the Commonwealth Bank Cup was (I am pretty sure) a game that was a preliminary game to the Eels v Great Britain touring team in 1992. I was there in the crowd on that great night in Eels history and the/a preliminary game was (I think) between Fairfield Pats and someone like Greystanes. Fairfield Pats went on to win the Cup that year and I can still name most of the team.

    Chris Hately
    Andrew Hill (the now administrator)
    Garen Casey (played a bit of first grade)
    Darren Pettit (played a lot of reserve grade)
    Justin Morgan (now a coach somewhere in Europe)
    Chris Yates

    Ok so maybe thats not most, but it is still pretty good recall.

    some time in the 60s is as close as I can remember, it may have not been Comm Bank Cup when I started but played for a couple for years, I was an outside back
