Rugby League In Lockdown

On March 23, the Australian Rugby League Commission and the National Rugby League announced it will suspend the 2020 Telstra Premiership Season until further notice. In response to both the revised medical advice from government health officials and bio-security experts, coupled with the travel bans introduced by the Queensland and New Zealand governments, the NRL said it was unable to continue the competition.

1977 Amco Cup

The 1977 Amco Cup series will forever be remembered for Russell Fairfax missing a simple kick at goal that would have given Eastern Suburbs the title. In the final played at Leichhardt Oval, Western Suburbs led 6-2 with less than three minutes to go. Fairfax raced onto a pass from skipper Arthur Beetson and then put over a short chip kick and beat Wests' Geoff Smith to snap up the ball and score near the right hand posts. Fairfax lined up the kick at goal but the ball went wide and the Magpies held on for the final 90 seconds to win the match, 6-5 and collect the $60,000 prize money, $40,000 in cash and $20,000 in overseas travel.
