  1. Didn’t Roy and HG in their spoof commentary of Origin call Freddy Fittler ‘Adolf; Fittler?

    And what about “The Count” Anthony Minichiello?

  2. Michael “The Crow” Cronin
    Peter “Sterlo” Sterling
    Eric “The Guru” Grothe
    Bob “The Bear” O’Reilly

  3. My favourite double-team:

    At Manly, on the hill, we used to call Cliffy Lyons “God”.

    So when Steven Menzies came along, setting try-scoring records by running off Cliff Lyons’ right shoulder, we called him “Jesus”, because he’s always at God’s right hand.
