Arthur Beetson comes to blows with Mick Cronin during Game 1, 1980.
There’s only one moment that could trump the greatest try of all time and that is the scuffle that sparked State of Origin to life. Maroons skipper Beetson ignited the “state against state, mate against mate” ideology with a famous punch landed on NSW centre Mick Cronin – his Parramatta teammate. The bitter rivalry began.
Looks like Balmain’s Max Tomsett as Touch Judge. An accomplished man indeed.
