Those opening credits for the 1989 Grand Final... best ever! Suddenly transported back 30 years. Brings a tear to the eye.

Sadly, they're giving us the Brisbane TV commentary... rather than the classic Graeme Hughes/Ian Maurice/Rex Mossop commentary. Guess I should have just watched the YouTube video above... and I could have avoided Mick Ennis, pretending to smile while he tells us it is one of the greatest games of rugby league in history.

Unfortunately it could have been a much better program. Needed better selection of moments. Better commentary track and maybe some more discussion and insight from key players.
