    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 ?

    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.
