    John Dyson's catch

    Does anyone have any photos or video of John Dyson's catch to dismiss Sylvester Clarke in 1982?

    Many (me included) consider it to be far and away the best catch ever. That's a big statement, but it's mainly in response to Channel 9's top six video of the "best ever" which has been doing the rounds. (unfortunately that's a 100mb file, and probably copyrighted so I can't post it anywhere). The catches in their top 6 are very impressive, but to not even include Dyson's catch, not even in their collection of other catches outside the top 6, is downright insulting.

    I was trying to convince some of the young guys at work who don't remember it, but I don't have any footage to back it up. Anybody got any links for me?

    cheers,
    Ian

    I don't have any footage sorry, but yes it was a great catch.

    I showed the catch to my father, and he said 'his was fielding out of position'
    You know it makes sense.
