    I remember when I was watching a game between Glebe and Annandale back in 1911 when a young Frank Burge burst onto the scene. I think they called him Chunky.

    Haha, best of luck with that!

    Not only have you exposed yourself multiple times on this site as a certified moron, you’ve now exposed yourself as a completely trash human being.
    So good job by you.

    They used to call him Terry "Tee-Hee" Hill because of his non-funny joke cracking antics.

    When Hill used to carry the ball in SOO matches,Roy & H.G. would go silent until some else got the ball.

    Remember about 10 years or so ago when Sparkles hammered the holy shit out of Mal Menninga (smell my finger) in that charity match? That certainly was a RLWTF moment.

    Would like to see some footage of that match. Usually a bit of fun but 'Hammer' was apparently putting massive hits on Queenslanders all night, till the inevitable fight with monobrow.

    Pretty sure ‘Hammer’ broke his hand on Meninga’s head when he punched him in that legends game......
