Kerls had a weekly column in the News and he always used it to further his aims. He called for defenders spoiling the ball to be outlawed because it would bring more marking into the game and be a better spectacle. He didn't for once think that he had the highest marking forward line in the league and could be giving them another hand up.All-Australian that year. A few Westies blokes had career bests in ‘83. Linder & Luders were two more that come to mind.
Such a potent forward line - they kicked ‘em from everywhere, fmd.
Dat game at Richmond when they came from the clouds in the last ten minutes to beat us by one point and effectively end our season.
Poor ol’ Dexter Kennedy. Moves to Alberton the year Westies break their 22-year premiership drought. Stars in the ‘84 finals but... f@%k.
Also Mark Mickan. Played every game that year but missed the finals thru injury. Dirk de Jong answers Kerls’ SOS call, plays two games and jags a flag.
Fos didn’t mind a country call-up during the finals, either...
Jack called Tony Hannan down from country footy twice for premierships.
