slip

slip

Try and name the players who won man of the match in 1981, 1982, 1983 and 1986. You can also try and name the MOM in the losing GF's, 1976, 1977, 1984, 2001 and 2009.

* MOM 1954-1985 was determined retrospectively by a panel of experts in 2008.

Parra lost those Grand Final's. The award (Clive Churchill Medal) would of been given to a player from the winning team.

Sorry I thought you meant who did Parra award their MOTM to, lol. That said, Clyde has won the CC Medal from the losing team, there may be another.

Slater got CC Medal in 2009, I think Joey got the 2001

Correct! Prior to 1986, wasn't there a MOM? I'm sure there was during the season for every game. What's this panel of experts in 2008 that's in the 2012 official rugby league annual?

Sterlo in 1986.

Pretty sure Brett Kenny would have gotten it in '82...probably even '83.

If Parra won in '09 I reckon Moimoi would have gotten the award. Either him or Mateo (who basically sparked our comeback in the second half).

Not sure who would have won in '01. I can't remember much about that game.

We would have won in 09 had Hayne played well enough to deserve it.

They did do something a few years ago where they retrospectively gave man of the match awards in those years.

That list is correct, but what about the MOM decision being made on the day of the Grand Final?

What are the asterixs against Young & Eadie's names for?

1977 and 1978 were replay's.

Yeah no man of the match for the drawn games, just the replays - I thought the asterixes might've been because Young was soft and Wombat overrated.

Damn straight, watch Eadie try and bundle Grothe into touch, but only gets a piggyback ride over the tryline. lol

Cronin, Edge, Kenny, Ella then Grothe - great to watch.
