The Cumberland Throw

Edge and Cronin Interview – Part 2

Continuing from where we left off from part one, we begin at 1980 when Steve Edge first came to Parramatta.


Steve and Mick talk to us about the legendary run from 1981 to 1983 (where we got “greedy” winning three in a row …. watch the video and you’ll love yet another Jack Gibson quote about “getting greedy”), memories of the 1981 Grand Final break through, then not being not far off the pace in 1984 and 1985, as well as their thoughts on playing Canterbury and Warren Ryan coached teams.


Steve and Mick also get to share some good natured observations on other Blue and Gold greats.


We hope you have as much fun watching the this as we did being there.


So sit back, grab a comfortable seat, your favourite beverage and enjoy the next twenty minutes as The Cumberland Throw presents “Part Two” of the Edge and Cronin interview.

Always willing to help a good cause
time for bed too many andthru’s


After sharing time with these two blokes on the shoot day, it’s wonderful to watch the interview all over again. Nothing was too much trouble for these blokes. Mick drove up from Gerringong for the interview and Steve made the Kogarah dressing shed available as the venue. We were also privy to more great stories before and after the shoot. Besides DK’s great edit, and the camera work of Forty and DK, I’d like to make mention of Miatch. It’s his voice that you hear in the interview. He doesn’t want to feature so you don’t see him on screen.… Read more »


thanks mate, you’re too kind.

full credit to the boys.


Another unbelievable video boys. I get goose bumps when I watch these guys talk and I reckon it would be a great idea if the current team watched them as well. It would really help them “Buy in” to what made this club so special.


DK, Forty & Miatch you continue to impress – absolutely love this content, please keep it coming!

And Geoff, great image collection my friend!


Is sixties chump change Clint?


Of course not anon, forgive me Sixties, I forgot to mention you!


Cheers mate


We just do what we do. Glad it brings back some memories.


Jack Gibson would have been a wonderful bloke to know.
What an era of football for the eels. Unforgettable!

Parra Nonna

Great work.


The thing that I enjoy about listening to these blokes is the genuine responses. Great answers to questions about the feeling of winning a gfinal, fitting in to a new team, the fans. Refreshing stuff. No cliches.


Two more parts to come in this interview, then we go about finalising arrangements for our next legend interview.

Parramatta Tragic

That was thoroughly enjoyable and I am looking forward to the next two parts. One of the highlights in the 1981 GF for me as a fan was Cronin’s first kick at goal. The conversion of Kenny’s try from the sideline into what was basically a hurricane strength swirling wind was the best goal I have ever seen and has never been equaled or bettered.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
