It was the one that got away. The 1978 Grand Final between Cronulla and Manly and only for a bounce of the ball here, a dubious refereeing decision there and the Sharks could have claimed their first Premiership.
The '78 Grand Final would finish in a draw, before the Sea Eagles prevailed in a mid-week playoff against a Sharks side depleted by injury and suspension. It seems logical then that all those Sharks fans old enough to remember still consider Manly as public enemy number one.
In commemorating the 1978 clash, for the Sharks v Manly match up on June 21, a special ticket offer gives Cronulla fans an opportunity to cheer their team to some belated revenge, while those from the Northern Beaches can look to rub a little more salt into Sharks wounds in support of the Sea Eagles.
