Title: ... p24 Rocky Turner - Memories of 62 Test Match Beattie incident - by Richard Pope

I spent my 16th birthday (Saturday 14 July 1962 )sitting on the SCG hill, watching Australia win a rare test match against the Poms.
Darcy Lawler, the referee, at the time dismissed the idea that Dud Beattie(later Queensland chairman of selectors) provoked Rocky Turner into the fight which eventuated in their send-offs, on the basis that Beattie was not smart enough to think of something like that.
It was probably not realised at the time, but the match commenced Australia's 50 year domination of world rugby league. The great 1963 Kangaroo touring side further cemented our domination.
