Interesting to hear Ian Chappel's comments at the Matador Cup final when they showed a guy in a North Sydney Bears tracksuit and another on the hill with Bears jersey.

According to an old boss of mine, who played Rugby for Northern Suburbs, the Shoreman nickname came from them originally forming & playing at a ground that was next to Holterman's Blue St house. I ...
