Souths captain John Sattler’s jaw was shattered in a cowardly blow by Manly’s John Bucknall in the 1970 Rugby League Grand Final. Incredibly, Sattler refused to leave the field. He pleaded to team mate Mike Cleary, “Hold me up so they don’t know I’m hurt”. He then proceeded to play out the entire match helping the team claim South Sydney’s 19th premiership victory.
John Sattler has personally signed the image of when he had his jaw broken by Bucknall in the Grand Final. The item comes with a certificate of authenticity which also comes with an image of John from the signing session
