I was too young to remember this final but have seen replays of the game obviously on YouTube but also ESPN classics and have to agree its the best final ever. BTW was kenny and sterling playing in England during the off-season in Australia on short term contracts?
Yes they played the off season in England, I am sure playing the game at the same time now is a good thing but when it was a split between the Leagues seasons it made for some great short signs ups like Sterlo Kenny, Ella, Grothe, Lewis, Meninga and Miles.
On the other side we had Hanley, Lydon, Offiah, Gregory, Crooks, Schoey, Ward and many others that did really well in Oz
In Rugby League, if you are standing still, you're going backwards fast.
Talent is secondary to whether players are confident.
