My dad played against that team, apparently they were pretty good…Close Subbie
....and from the sideline, the coach of the Joeys 1st XV, Br Oswald was heard to call out to the Joeys captain, Mark Burgess to "tackle the black kid" to which he replied...
"which one? there are 100's of them..."
(1976) SJC v Matraville trial game won by Matraville 15-9
Future Wallabies coach Bob Dwyer was at the game, “While Joey’s played strong, quick rugby full of initiative and aggression the little Matraville guys would just tackle and tackle until their opponents coughed up possession.” Some believe that Matraville side is the greatest Australian schools side ever – public or private.
I disagree the 1963 SBHS team won the premiership undefeated and produced five future Wallabies.
