It was deliberate. He put his studs in Myers’s face and kicked. It should have been a free to Myers and a report for Hipwood. Instead it was a goal to the Koalas and Myers took no further part in the match, leaving us down a man.
Why did the prick do it ? He lashed out in frustration, I reckon, because he couldn’t stand being smothered constantly by Paddy Ambrose. Weak character. Spoilt rotten.
As for David Myers — he must be the unluckiest player ever on our list. A bright promise spoilt by years of serious injury — and every time he comes good, as he did today, something happens to stuff him up again. It’s very possible he won’t be fit enough to turn out against the tin-rattlers. Fugg Hipwood.
