jeff fenech the boxer played wing for the eels
The relevance? Just asking.
i liked neville glover, semi rad trailer, grothe, sharp ? jeff fenech , the current fiji winger sivo .fui fui moi moi, he is great, blake furgo, as all eels wingers , im missing alot, just memory lost, sorry
Fui was a bit lame under the high ball, to be fair
atkins was a good eels winger if my memory is right ? he was around in the golden times. tell the truth , most eels wingers have been good
It is about all wingers ever. Parra just happen to have the 2 best wingers I have seen and they also had the best pair of halves I have seen.
Unfortunately he didn’t play NRL for long, otherwise it wouldn’t be much of a contest. Perfect combination of size, speed and strength.
Never played played first grade. Never played wing.
I swear i remember the news report of jeff fenechs first ever game with him on the wing in jumper twenty something
I'm not, really - I am 35 years old.
But I have VHS tapes of the entire '81, '82, and '86 seasons (my dad was a massive fan).
My recollection was that he was a benchy in reserve grade and he played hooker.
hard to compare when Semi only played a handful of seasons, we may never see him at his full potential as he is only playing for a big payday atm and he is not playing in the best league in the world
It is very hard to compare the two. I was fortunate to see Grothe play his whole career he had strength and elusiveness whereas Semi used his strength and speed. I would have to say that Grothe gets my vote purely on the fact that he was so hard to contain. Just a side note that Ken Irvine was pretty good as well.
yes i remember the marrickville mauler Jeff fenech , came off the bench into the 1st grade top side game, for 10 mins on the wing, and got smashed a few times in tackles, and thats about it, it was set up, with the tv crews on sidline, and a small celebration, that jeff got to play 1st grade with the big boys , it was at parramatta stadium
I have the 81-83 ones on Betamax. Even more useless.
you can get all tapes, vhs , betamax,sega24, burned onto disks
He never got on the field in a 1st grade NSWRL match. I know there's some blokes on the other site who state that they saw it happen, but I suspect they're thinking of him running onto the field off the bench in reserves.
I'm not sure they're in that good a nick
get the film , tapes cleaned, check out the quality , tranfer onto cd . worth a try
