Bears players had already began moving into Gosford properties when monsoonal rain delayed completion of Central Coast Stadium: Larson



North Sydney and Maroons legend Gary Larson has revealed that Bears players had already began moving into new properties on the Central Coast in 1998 prior to the infamous torrential rain in Gosford that cost the Bears their future in the NRL.

Speaking on the latest episode of the Top of the Props podcast, Larson and Curtis Woodward spoke about the construction of Central Coast Stadium which would have secured Norths’ spot in the competition and stopped a cursed merger with Manly-Warringah.

Long spells of monsoonal rain in 1999 saw completion delayed and spell doom for the Bears.
