Was it the greatest game of Rugby League ever played?
Almost certainly if you’re in any way a Canberra fan.
The Herald Sun informs us that the veterans of that glorious 1989 Grand Final are getting back together to celebrate Benny Elias’s ability to hit the cross bar:
- In what is a truly gracious offer from the Tigers, inviting their tormentors to revisit their greatest pain, both sides will host a fundraiser open to the public at Balmain Leagues Club tomorrow.
Those attending will include captains Wayne Pearce and Mal Meninga, as well as Paul Sironen, Laurie Daley, Steve Roach, Stuart, Elias and all the other greats that played the game that is regarded as the greatest Grand Final ever.
