#13 Previously worn (should I say not worn) by Wylie Buzza.
#13 was lucky for Geoff Bleythen played half a season and plays in the drought breaking 1977 premiership.No. 13
AFL players: Danny Morton (1998-2000), Chris Hall (2003), Ben Eckermann (2005), Mitch Farmer (2008), Cam O’Shea (2011-16), Todd Marshall (2017-19)
SANFL Premiership players: Lincoln (1914), J. Bennett (1937), N. Hender (1939), K. Obst (1942), Dean Trowse (1951), Roger Clift (1954, 55, 56, 57), John McBain (1962), Robert Philp (1963, 65), Geoff Blethyn (1977), Len Warren (1981), Rohan Smith (1988, 89, 92, 94, 95, 96)
Thought that was Nat Fyfe for a tenth of a second
I knew there was a thread getting about like this!Russell Ebert alone makes #7 a great number, but you could make a case for #3 (Brett Montgomery, Gavin Wanganeen (1990), Bomber Clifford, Randall Gerlach, Andrew Obst, Trevor Obst, ) and #5 (Brendon Lade, Bruce Abernethy, Brian Leys, Tim Evans, Bob Kingston, Bob McLean) as having equally oustanding histories.
Even the #21 guernsey X-Man has given up has some storied history with Craig Bradley, Mark Williams, David Brown, Jeff Potter, Bull Reval and Brick Hoffman.
The numbers game thread gives an idea of some of the greats who have worn numbers with distinction on their Port guernseys.
Please, it was worn with absolute distinction by the legendary Eddie Woloczek. Bobby "Emu" Philp preceded him, and Danny "Bug" Morton wore it in the 90s. The makings of a premiership team there.#13 Previously worn (should I say not worn) by Wylie Buzza.
Rohan Smith had a great career in the no 13, apart from him can't think of any Port player in the SANFL or AFL to wear it with any distinction.
There is more to the story of his choice of #13 ....
