In this weeks episode of Roosters Radio, we chat with Club Legend Kevin 'Horrie' Hastings.

Horrie shares his thoughts on our last round match with Penrith, how the game has changed since his playing days, the new rules and his best memories from the Sydney Sports Ground.

Hastings also talks about this Sunday's State of Origin game, the great halfbacks he faced during his career and shares the story of when he came up against the great Tommy Raudonikis.

When it came to a favourite game at the Sydney Sports Ground - the Club's home base before being renovated into the Sydney Football Stadium - Hastings pinpointed one match that stood out from the rest in his 237-game career in Red, White and Blue. 

"God, there were a few games there," he reminisced.

"They were all great but there was one in particular. I've got a photo of it after the game, my hands are raised, it's like we won the grand final or something.

"We had a shocking year. It was under Laurie Freier, but we beat Western Suburbs. I think we beat them 11-6 or 10-6 or something like that, it was pretty close. Johnny Harvey scored an intercept try. They kicked it and he plucked out the air and ran about 30 metres and scored.

"But it was like we won the lottery, really. It was just because we were down and out. We were just terrible that year. And, you know, to win, that was just an amazing feeling."
