Meanwhile Tim Sheens has gambled on a bench shake-up, handing injury-prone Steve Jackson just his fifth cap in first grade this season and squeezing in 21-year-old half Kevin Walters.

Will be tough for today's commentators to match the Channel 10 Sydney call of 1989.

I think it would also be tough to recreate the energy and emotion of calling the game, since they already know the outcome
Feel free to call me RickyRicky StickStick if you like. I will also accept Super Fui, King Brad, Kid Dynamite, Chocolate-Thunda... or Brad.

Ben Ikin was 12 when his beloved Raiders beat the Tigers... Here, he remembers the greatest Grand Final of all time

The year was 1989. The score was 19-14. Canberra were victorious, Balmain were not. Many say it was the greatest rugby league grand final of all time. I don’t disagree, but I was a Raiders fan back then.

Mal Meninga was Canberra captain, ably supported by a stellar line up – Belcher, Stuart, Lazarus, Walters, Clyde, Daley – with coaching maestro, Tim Sheens in charge. The Raiders would become a formidable force in the years that followed, but in 1989 they were still more green than machine.

Canberra Raiders step back in time to '89 as it's time to relive the good old days

Given we are all locked indoors with nothing but our couches and our blank TVs for company, let's strap on the stubby holder, open the chips and tune into Fox League at 3pm on Sunday to find out if the Raiders can win.

“I'd just started dating a Canberra girl, probably three months prior to that game and she came up to the game,” Steve Jackson said. “I went downstairs to meet her and have lunch with her and her friends. I remember saying to that group of people, 'This is so exciting, just to be involved. I won't get a game tomorrow because there's eight fresh reserves'.”

The Raiders Round 7 2010 loss to the Rabbitohs will be on next weekend, I believe on Saturday.

Might leave the Game Day thread to the original this week... https://www.thegh.com.au/forum/viewtopi ... =2&t=16721

Watched 89 on the weekend and thoroughly enjoyed it. Geez Mal could tackle. Some of the hits he put on were ridiculous. You'd hate lining up against him.
