Check out Game 3 of the 1991 SOO. It was my first exposure to RL and I fell in love with the sport on that night.
Awesome to watchA few glorious moments in this highlights package. As well as being a genius attacking-wise, Wally was also a brutal defender (complete opposite of Locky there to be honest)
He just had it all.
Awesome to watch
Can't say I really had ever watched his highlights before. So I haven't appreciated his greatness. Just was the complete package.
How good are those broncos cheerleaders uniforms though
So broncos fans who were around for both unanimously say Wally is better than Lockyer?
I wonder if I can find old games. Any suggestions what games to start with?
One thing that stood out for me in the first 32 minute video was how good Langer wasI was around for both (although a young kid when Wally played). Pretty hard to compare eras, tbh. If Lewis were starting out today I don't doubt he'd rise to a high stature in the game. Probably play origin. Would he be remembered as one of the all time greats? Maybe. Impossible to say. If you go watch league matches from the late 80s, the game's so different it's practically a different code.
If picking a greatest bronco of all time for me it's between Lockyer & Langer.
Mate when I was young bloke, just after he had retired he came up to Mackay to do a little tour with the Broncos side of that year. He was an absolute Legend to me as a young bloke of about 6 or 7. Me and the family followed them around to a bunch of local bars and training fields and every place I was yelling Wally, Wally, he remembered my name, signed my shirts and ball, never once treated me like the pest I was.I went back and watched all the greats from the 90s but I never cared to look into the Wally hype because I’ve always hated his head and dry tofty personality Obviously I’ve seen footage here and there and heard all the stories but I never did a real deep dive.
Yeah I saw a game on YouTube I think it was 92 when he was captain/coach of the seagulls against the bulldogs, his idea of attacking moves was a run around with his halfback Lol he must have done it 5 times in that game and got smashed every single timeThere’s footage of him on YouTube. Bloke was fucking good.
**** me, and I thought you couldn’t be any more irrelevant on this forum. Congratulations, you’ve just outdone yourself.Wally was a hype job and not fit to tie Langers boot laces. Also he was a grub not adverse to spitting in the face of an opponent.
