    Les Davidson broke Rod Silva's jaw with a cheap late shot, could never stand the bloke after that and didn't really like him before that either, saw him on a episode of ET's fishing show not long ago, looked like an old fat over weight thug.

      As a Souths fan, I can verify that Davidson didn't mind a cheap shot. There's YouTube footage of some of his biff too; one involves Peter Kelly at a scrum when Kelly played for Penrith.

      1st game I remember going to was Souths vs Easts at Redfern Oval. Pretty sure it was 1983 & Chooks won 34-10. Don't recall much else as I was pretty young.

      In 1986 I again saw Souths vs Easts at Redfern, & Souths won 8-6. I remember clearly Gary Wurth being concussed or dazed after Harrington ran over him for a try.

        2004, we smashed the Panthers at the SFS. Morley and co tore their pack a new one and Minichullio and Fittler had massive games. I think we scored over 40.

          Ross Harrington?

          Les Davidson was a pretty wild and angry player. Our Lindsay Collins reminds me a bit of him.

            Yep it was Ross Harrington. He was built like Wendell Sailor or Eric Grothe but much slower & less skilled. I'm pretty sure Harrington played a few games for Easts in 1991. Happy to be corrected on this.

              1976 round 22 vs North Sydney at North Sydney Oval.
              I was then a newly arrived Sydneysider and Bears supporter.
              Arthur and his merry men put the cleaners through the Bears 39-8 for the second time that year!

                Yep I remember Ross Harrington steam rolling Garry Wurth in that game at Redfern back in 1986. And yes you are right about Ross Harrington playing a couple of games for the Roosters but it was in 1992.

                    Yes it was indeed King Salvo. I was in my last year of primary school in 1986, & went to about 16 Souths matches that year including this one. Funnily enough, I went to most of those matches on my own. In 2017 a 11 year old at the footy alone it would be impossible.

                    Thanks for the footage, great memories.
