And for a little more, including superstition;

‘91 - I wore a ‘91 jersey and my sister a ‘90
‘03 - I wore a ‘02 jersey and my brother my old ‘91
‘20 - my kids, my brother and I are all wearing ‘19 jerseys, although I will have my ‘02 underneath.

No idea of the bay/row number but in 1991 it was about 25 rows back from where Greg Alexander kicked the last conversion. Sat next to a couple of Raiders supporters; that was enjoyable.

In '91 it was at Football Stadium. We were a few rows from fence in SW corner, close to where MG was sent to bin.
In '03 were were about 6 rows from front on Eastern side, close to where Sattler’s tackle took place.

Today we are in 143-2 Row 38, so at Southern end.

In 91, I was 31. Single, living in Epping. I was a Courier. Watched the GF at a BBQ with mates.

2003, I was 43, de-facto, living in Alexandria. I was a freelance Writer. Missed the GF 'cos my partner’s brother took too much speed that day & we had to go to Bankstown Hospital to be with him. He always was a dropkick! Fortunately, I taped the game off TV.

2020 - 60, living at Dungog, still de-facto, same partner of 24 years. Now I’m a part-time Massage Therapist. Will watch the game on TV if the reception holds.

Go Panthers!!
