SB 1960 COVER OF BOOK

SB 1966 81

  A very rare photo from one of the scrapbooks

 There are 11 of these wonderful books.

 I was able to spend many hours reading and scanning these books.

 The books cover the years 1960 to 1966.

I have scanned and copied over 200 pics and stories which is only about half of the total.

The scrapbooks were put together by a Balmain supporter who  would paste the write ups on all games from the Sydney afternoon newspapers.

I have tried to get the dates, years and results of all of the games but it was not always possible.

If you see a mistake please contact me and I will fix it.

The first year in the scrapbooks is 1960.

So on with the show……..

Just for the record.

Easts, Wests, Balmain and Canterbury all finished in equal second place.

On the Tuesday following the final round, the four teams played in a double header.

The winners would play each other to determine second and third place, while the losers would play off for the fourth place in the finals.

This resulted in Wests finishing second, Easts third, Canterbury fourth and Balmain was relegated to fifth place.
