I just thought I would let you know. In the game between Canterbury and St George at Belmore Sports Ground on May 18, 1980.
-That St George Lead 17-2 at Halftime.
-Steve Gearin had 5 Attempts at Goal.
-Graeme Wynn had 6 Attempts at Goal.
-Sorry to point this out. I notice that you have Kevin Roberts as the Referee for this game.
-Kevin Roberts did not Referee this game.
-Barry Bradstock who you did have as Referee for this game on this website many years ago. Was the Referee for this game Instead of Kevin Roberts.
-In regards to the Referee for this game. I gather you went off what I told you many years ago. Which was after reading match reports in both the Daily Mirror and Sydney Morning Herald from Monday, May 19, 1980. Which made mention of Kevin Roberts being the Referee for this game. Which looking at it now was incorrect.
-I have since seen footage today of edited highlights of this game on https://www.youtube.com/ Which was uploaded by Eagle Eric under the title 1980 Canterbury v St George Rd 8 Where I noticed Barry Bradstock in the footage as the referee. As well as also reading in the Daily Mirror from Tuesday, May 20, 1980. Also Rugby League Week Volume. 11 Number. 13 1980 about Roberts withdrawing from that game to be replaced by Bradstock.
