Game #72 – Round 17, 1993 vs Melbourne at Western Oval (24/7/1993)

Kicked 1.2 from 15k, 5hb in 13-point loss to the Demons.

Respective centre half-forwards Garry Lyon and Chris Grant had willing opponents in Barry Standfield and David Neitz, but their class shone through as the game progressed.

Game #71 – Round 16, 1993 vs Collingwood at Victoria Park (17/7/1993)

One of our best, kicking 3.7 from 16k, 2hb in 64-point loss to the Magpies.

Bulldog centre half-forward Chris Grant made his mark on the match when switched from Jason McCartney to full-forward. Granty also provided the highlight of the day by finishing off the first goal of the second term. It sprang from a typical Liberatore tackle on McCartney, a mere 28 centimetres taller. Awarded the free, Liberatore found Grant to create a goal out of sheer grit.

That highlight plus Sav Rocca kicking 10 goals can be viewed on YouTube:
