Few beers tonight, watching GB v Australia games.
The Aussie tours of yesteryear were things of magnificence. Seeing our teams pit themselves against those players was fantastic. I remember seeing the Aussies at Naughton Park of course but, as a family, we also ventured to other grounds to watch the tour games, they were all superb spectacles.
The last video I watched tonight was the 1st test at Wembley 1994 when Jiffy scored that try. Edwards was sent off early. It wasn't a try-fest, 8-4 it ended up. But look at the effort from GB, look at the legends in the Aussie team, what a match! Jiffy was superb, Bobby was a ledge, it was a massive effort. The series never came home of course but, by Christ, it was RL at it's finest. Oh, for those days again.
Appreciate they weren't tours over here, but they were great games! 😀
1992 in Melbourne
I was there that night, and it still remains the highlight of the 60+ years that I've been a fan of the Greatest Game on the Planet!
