The Cumberland Throw yet again had the pleasure of visiting another legend of our great club, this time, the man widely regarded as the best winger of all time, Eric Grothe Snr.
Now before anyone pipes up and says “hey what about Semi?”, for those out there old enough to remember, Eric brought the crowd to it’s feet every time he touched the ball. Every run was power personified, determination and danger to the opposition and Eric was arguably one of the best cover defenders we had seen in years.
The comparisons between Eric and Semi with the way they play the game, their passion, determination, power, strength, speed and for pure crowd excitement are uncanny!
But this interview is all about Eric!
Still softly spoken, still a bit of a larrikan with some of his comments, still every bit THE GURU.
We hope you enjoy watching this latest installment in The Cumberland Throw’s Legends series.
