    Will look the favourite for the British Open next year but probably end up as the local pro at Cranbourne by 2020.



    * but in all seriousness best of luck to the kid.

    Saw this pop up yesterday.
    Some people that did not see Rhys-Jones play may think he was just a footballer that had white line fever and got into a lot of fights but as some of this video shows, he was also a very gifted footballer too.

    Round 9 1982. Carlton playing Swans at PP kicked 12.5.77 in the first quarter.
    Round 7 1983. Carlton playing Swans at SCG kicked 13.4.82 in the second quarter.

    It takes us four quarters these days!

    I was feigning allegiance to North Melbourne u19s at Arden Street that day while listening to the radio as Carlton booted 14 in a quarter.

    ..and against Essendon again, Carlton at Princes Park kicked 12.0.72 in '72 in the second quarter and Jezza kicked 6 goals in 11 minutes in that quarter.

    Carlton kicked its record score of 30.30.210 against the Hawks at PP in 1969. 18.22 at orange time. You do the math.

    Essendon were a pack of aresholes in those days, that number 3 Beaumont used to start brawls at any chance.

    As for the infamous Rotten Ronnie Andrews, he hit more little guys than Big Carl & Matthews combined.

    From memory, Souths Stewie Gull, who could go 3 rounds, put his lights out around that time.

    Richmond were also at the peak of their thuggery in those days and when they recruited Mal Brown in '74 the Windy Hill brawl in that season was a big flare up waiting to happen.

    Well worth a look. Even a very young SOS takes a ruck contest a few minutes in.

    Came across this the other night.
    Not seen any of this preliminary final since the very year it was played.
    Funny how this video is originally via ESPN network. Must have been their weekly instalment back then for an hour. Quality of video not high due to looking like from old VHS tapes but still watchable and interesting to go back in memory banks. Funny to see Brereton matched up with Peter McConville and Curly Austin gives Lethal Leigh a towelling as the day went on. Doull and Buckenara on each other. Two stars.

    Torrid opening as they used to say back then. Players on both sides look like they both expecting get whacked each time in first five minutes. No beg your pardons as they used to say. No Maclure, Jimmy Buckley or Southby for us.

    The Woof is heard very early in the coverage. ha ha

    I remember the conditions as being very blustery early on, which was reflected in the half time scores of 2.11 to 3.9. Our forward line functioned much better in the second half, leading to a relatively comfortable win in the end (interesting to note that 3 of our top 5 possession winners were defenders: Austin, English & Doull).
