Was going to say, Robert Flowers was supposed to retire 1986 right? He also injured himself during his last gameHad Melbourne failed to coax him out of retirement (1987 where he played in 3 finals in his final 3 matches) then it would've been Robbie Flower for sure.
Swallow is at least high on that current list:Honestly a very good question! I can’t think of anyone but I am probably not thinking hard enough! Probably have to go back to the dark Fitzroy days to find someone. Or even Gold Coast? David Swallow? Did Jarrod Witts play in a final for Collingwood?
You might want to realise that Bolton isn't our coach any more.Surely Trevor Barker is the top answer to this question.
Although Cripps might get there one day, especially if he stays at that s**thole at Carlton, he'll never get close to playing in a final.
Best thing is Rocky went to Port chasing finals and now Brisbane look to be a contender whilst Port's best hope is squeezing into the 8 you'd think.Swallow is at least high on that current list:
190 Tom Rockliff
174 Jack Watts
161 Pearce Hanley
155 Jack Newnes
139 David Swallow, Brandon Matera
Rockcliff or Watts ripping the opposition part in a final? Sounds wrong anyhow...
