Rick Andrews 1964

There is a glorious memory of the day at Vimiera when playing Normanhurst, Peter Pentes (Pappy), who was re-tieing his boot lace on the left flank, took off to the right wing as a Normanhurst player streaked for the try line. Pappy was there waiting for him and just stood in his way and the legend has grown such that the poor Normanhurst winger bounced to the clubhouse steps (but as I recall, he catapulted into touch and didn't get up for some time).

I always remembered this incident and it surfaced again in a '64 email from the Badger. This saved the day and we won.

Epping BHS had 1 and 2 in the state 100 and 200 yards (then I suppose) with Pappy Pentes and Brian Tieste plus David Fewchuck, I think, in 400. Pappy was also known for his lack of cricketing ability, but he claimed that his arm muscles got in the way when he bowled.
