Relive the 1998 Preliminary Final... and that comeback via Classic Footy Films.

[Q] FINALS QUESTION: Who is the last player to appear in a semi final game as his only appearance in the top grade for the season. And although his team won that game, he just wasn't picked again for the next semi final.

Answer below.

[A] FINALS ANSWER... Ian Herron played in Parramata's second semi final of 1998 after spending the entire season in reserve grade. He kicked 3 from 4, as Parra beat Brisbane 15-10 to qualify for the Preliminary Final, but was dropped for Clinton Schifcofske in the game you just watched.

So basically if the Chook plays against the Chook - does Canterbury's Chook win the game with the kick above?
