I remember a game we played the Kangas ..might of been a final rucking against Gary Dempsey ..kicked his arse that day ..best game he played I reckon ..ran with him all day ..
Big Percy.

Gags best mate.

Got caught in a nightclub 2 nights before a final in the early 70s.

Jezza took charge, and made an example of his 14 year mate.

Made him sweat, made him run, got the old boy fit...... sorta.

He played a crucial role in ‘79.

The photos are there, Jezza calls up his mate to hold the cup.

Played his record game v the Pies at Vikky Park in late ‘74, then jumped/pushed into retirement as Fitzpatrick was on the way over.

Kept the coaching gig for ‘75, then was booted for Thorogood.

Huge loss in 1973.

Lost him and Armstrong after the Second Semi Final win.

Tried to cover with Brian Walsh and Vinnie in his first game, Walsh was a goal kicking forward, and so it happened as thus.
