Balmain Tigers Grand Final win, 1969

 A foundation club of NSW Rugby League, the Balmain Tigers played their first match on April 20th 1908 against Western Suburbs at Birchgrove Oval, winning 24 to nil. Remembering their 1969 premiership win against fellow inner-city club South Sydney, Balmain’s Francis Peters-Little says “It was one of the happiest days for Balmain, we went up and down Darling Street and just yelled and yelled and screamed, we felt so proud of our local team, it was just an awesome day”
