Agree on Plugger; he was the best. Certainly as a dedicated full forward. Amazing footballer. The Richmond link is interesting. It was at the end of the 94 season. My memory is that he nominated Richmond as his preferred club but the Saints wanted our up and coming star Richo to be included in the deal and we rightfully refused. Of course the AFL was pretty keen to get Plugger to Sydney which didn't help. We had a great season in 95 making the PF after Richo's season was ended in round 9 and with Stephen Jurica and Stuart Edwards as our key forwards. What could have been with Plugger at FFplugger was deceptively athletic.
Im not saying he was any Nick Riewoldt, but within the 50m arc, he could motor and turn.
plugger was a brute.
Nearly came to the tigers.
for some reason, I always put dunstall and Lloyd in the same basket. undisputed champions, who were a bit boring to watch, and benefitted from the midfield service.
back on Cam Mooney, yeah hes one of the most fraudulent 'greats' of all time.
wouldn't get a game in our current line up. about as good as Brody Mihocheck
Reckon you're selling Dunstall short though ezy on the Lloyd comparison. Dunstall was a superstar and Lloyd not fit to carry his bags.
Mooney was one of the most overrated players I've ever seen. No chance he gets a game in our side today; he'd struggle to get one in our VFL side.
