'Lord' Ted does it again!

(Reproduced with permission from the Saints Immortals website- Quigs recommends that you pay the Immortals a visit...)

One game against Cronulla in 1973 always sticks in my mind. It was at the Sydney Cricket Ground and the referee, Mick Norton was from England—he did know how to ref.

It was an absolute thriller of a game and the scores were locked at half time. Cronulla scored just after the break to take a 3 point lead and I can tell you it was nail biting stuff for the rest of the second half and I thought we were gone for sure. But, with only 5 minutes to go, 'Lord' Ted won the game.

He took a great ball close to Saints' line and burst through the opposition to race down the field. The ball went to Johnny Chapman on to Johnny Peard back to Chapman and then on to Rocket who scored—Chang converted.

It was one of the best tries you could see but it all started with Goodwin.

Great story Billy Hudson.

FROM QUIGS..... I think I was also at this game. And, if my memory serves me correctly, Harry Eden scored a big try for saints too. What stuck in my mind was that Saints were able to target the poor defencive skills of Sharks winger Ray Corcoran and they scored three tries down his side. The Captain Coach of the Sharks, Tommy Bishop dropped a bombshell next week dropping 2nd Rower John Maguire instead of Corcoran. He's reasoning was simple.....we all knew Rays defence wasn't the best and it was Maguires job to cover Ray.
