    Not sure what you mean Grim. Do you mean that this player was on the list but didn't play the WCE first game or was in a broader squad in 1986 but wasn't on their list for the 1987 season?

    a) won a Sandover medal
    b) played for both pre-merger clubs.

    Good guess Ian, but not him.

    Said player also spent time with with the Richmond reserves.

    Brisbane drafted him after coaxing him out of retirement.

    Clue to the previous question - this player was named as coach in the queensland team of the century.

    Another question - Who am I? I played three seasons with Fitzroy and captained them in two. Upon leaving I made the following comments - "Only four Fitzroy players - Norm Brown, Doug Hellings, John Newnham and Ian McCrae - would hold a place with another VFL club". The Fitzroy Football club said that I owed my team mates an apology before they would grant my transfer request to Waverley.
