Unfortunately I was too busy to participate but I challenged myself later. The Darren Burns question was annoying, tip of the tongue sort of stuff.

Plath was before my time and I barely remember any of the Hall of Famers other than Wally because he became noticeably less judgemental in commentary afterwards.

The Wigan vs. Broncos game was another that annoyed me because I was trying to remember the player - I just recall Joe Burgess burning Vidot down the sideline and that seemingly granting Maranta the wing spot sending Twitter into meltdown. Something Will? Big polynesian centre, may have even played for an NRL team at some point but didn't last long...

Old school BHQers will always remember Craig Frawley. I'm still gutted to this day they didn't award his try in THAT game against the Dragons. I was right there, the grounding was clean!!

2010 Origin was rough - Ennis (took a swing at Myles and then hid behind Grant or one of the big boppers), Boyd (got speared into the ground by LOD), Taylor (got head-butted by LOD after confronting the boof head), Bulla (missed Game I but may have played the rest of the series), Costigan (career best form), TLL (also in career best form, one of the Blues best around that time period, pretty sure he played...)

Ballin was a Broncos junior but never played first grade. 5/8 players and Lockyer, Folau and Thaiday all played. JYY was 18th man in Game II and earned the Keith award for taking a team photo with the shield. I'm prepared to say Hannant missed out that series after a really disappointing sophmore season at the Bulldogs. I remember arguing with somebody over at LU who claimed he was already better than Webcke...

In 5th spot, with a score of 22 is @1910.
Fun fact: 1910 would have won this by a mile, but a lot of his answers were too late. Sorry mate.

Name The Opponent

11. The team we set our single game highest points total in a match against.
Newcastle Knights (would have also accepted Halifax).

12. Match played in England the day before the World Club Challenge final. A player on the opposition team blocked Corey Parker's last minute shot at a penalty goal.
Wigan Warriors

13. The team that handed us our first ever defeat.
Balmain Tigers

14. Down 22-8 with not long left in the game, John Plath comes on and sparks some magic, scoring two tries for Brisbane to win 24-22.
Illawarra Steelers

15. We lose 10-7. Jordan Kahu scores 3 of the points we scored, but also touches the ball before it travels 10 metres on an attempted short kick off. This is the catalyst for our opposition to come back.
Canterbury Bulldogs

Renouf, Matterson, D. Smith were a few of the obvious headgear players...

Barnes, Wyatt, Swain, Piakura are a few of the more obscure players that come to mind.

I'm sure Gillett wore headgear once, Mick Ennis was one
I had Renouf, smith, matterson, priddis (wrong). I also wanted to put Richard swain but wasn’t sure he played for us.
