Obviously the high flying marks, banana kicks, searing runs and chase-down tackles get all the glory.

But one thing I used to love watching was Jeffy fend off a tackler. He'd swat away the arm, before breaking free. So simple, but effective. And dismissive.

Felt like you were sitting at dinner and reached in to grab a 2nd choccie biscuit from the table but your mum slapped your hand away with swift brutality..... Nice try.... Not on my watch.

Loved watching Jeffy play. Especially those run down tackles that left his opponents stupefied.....the look on Boomer's face priceless.

It's easy to forget just how quick Jeffy was. We haven't had anyone on our list since who could match that breakaway speed. Pickett would have come close, but Jeffy still had him covered.
