I recall Dave Roberts' captains speech at the rally as one of the best. It had a biblical theme, something along the lines of Mr Fenech parting the seas and leading them to the promised land at Tarban Creek where they did win the first premiership.
It went something like this.....
In the beginning there was Rugby. It stood tall and firm, and the Brothers saw that it was good.
However, one hundred years on, a small band of warriors braved tradition and set out on a mighty quest.
A star appeared; it beckoned the warriors to leave the holy land and enter the forbidden game.
These mighty warriors followed the star for many days and nights, until a miracle occurred.
From the depths of the earth's fury, waves of hot ash spewed up out of the water, creating the mountains.
Once the earth had settled, the warriors went down to the edge of the waters, summoning all their powers.
And lo!, the waters of Tarban Creek parted before them, and they walked between the giant walls of water.
As they journeyed along the creek bed, the walls of water began closing in, capturing the weak.
But, triumphant, the strong survived to see and enter the Promised Land, Tarban Creek Meg a-stadium!
