    This is tricky F.P.The two runner up awards,and the fact that he was a one club player, are rare clues.....Ross Thornton ?

    Not Thornton. He was recruited as a forward, but mainly played in defence.

    Brett Stephens came from Essendon, nearly every time Fitz v Ess met after he joined the Lions he'd get rolled out and quoted how he wanted his revenge on sheedy !

    Very loyal to the Mullet brigade at the Roys. Party in the back was our trademark look when you think about it.

    Brett Stephens also kicked 100 goals in 38 games for East Perth, including 69 in 1985.
    A very special player in my eyes since he played for both the Roys and the Royals.
