Cliff Lyons Winfield Cup Footy Card Gallery 1987-95

CLIFF LYONS FOOTY CARD GALLERY
Published November 29, 2020
The footy card (and subsequent stick of borderline unchewable chewing gum) was one of the cornerstones of Rugby League fandom during the 1980s and 1990s and to celebrate the evolution from sticker book to trading card - here is a selection of cards featuring Manly-Warringah's Cliff Lyons from 1987 through 1995.
Lyons debuted with North Sydney (something a lot of people don't realised actually happened) in 1985 playing 23 games before moving to Manly for the 1986 season.
But as a new player for 1986 he wasn't featured in Manly's nine player set on the new playing card format (the fact he wouldn't have had an in-game photo in a Manly jersey from 1985 likely a big reason given production timelines) as he missed out to Paul Vautin, Glenn Ryan, Richie Poulsen, Mark Pocock, Des Hasler, Marty Gurr, Mal Cochrane, Noel Cleal and a moustached Dale Shearer (shown below for an example of the 1986 card design).
But from 1987 through 1995 - Cliffy Lyons featured heavily in every playing card run.
Here is one from each season, sourced from various internet listings primarily on ebay. If you are interested in any of the items Cliff Lyons search on ebay will get you where you want to be quick smart.
1987 - Scanlens.
1988 - Scanlens.
1989 - Scanlens.
1990 - Scanlens.
1991 - Scanlens.
1992 - Regina.
1993 - Regina.
1994 - Dynamic.
1995 - Dynamic.

A Cameron Munsterclass has seen Queensland take out the 2020 State of Origin Series giving Matthew Duncan, Robb Cox and Warrick Nicolson plenty to talk about on Episode 226 of NOT The Footy Show.

We go into how good QLD were in Game 1 and 3 and how Uncle Benny pulled all the right strings for the worst QLD side of all time.

We also ask how Gerard Sutton can ever referee an Origin game again?

And delve deeply into the mistakes NSW and coach Brad Fittler made on and off the field that opened the door to the Maroons to end the Blues' quest for a three-peat.

Enjoy.

Josh Aloiai wants out of Tigertown because $$$$$$ #NRL

Josh wants his Cash...
Released November 18, 2020

Well well well.. another Wests Tigers player wants a massive upgrade after one good season in the black and gold.

Who knew this would happen... again?

Josh Aloiai has spent the last 24 hours trying to burn every bridge he has with the Wests Tigers and the Tigers are declaring they won't let the Ryan Matterson eventuality happen again... but we all know it will.

It's just a matter of if the Tigers get any compensation from cashed-up Manly (who have basically thrown their 2021 Addin Fonua-Blake money at the Tigers forward) before Aloiai joins the Sea Eagles for the coming season.

NOT The Footy Show's Robb Cox and Warrick Nicolson spend 4 minutes discussing the options ahead of the Wests Tigers especially and feel that if the Tigers really want to make a statement here they should just go out and poach a player in retaliation. Because waiting for the NRL to do something about players actually honouring contracts (they've signed when they weren't quite as good) is working out great for them so far...

Watch the 4 minute video below.
