Butch Edwards? I don't remember him as a winger, but as a forward later on. I was in primary school through the '70s.when a 17 yr old allan edwards came along to play wing for richmond in 1975 ,hes battles with grieg alone were worth the admittance money,'75-'78
thats another superstar grieg had to contend with...theres a handful of titanic clashes btwn richmond & north 1975-1977 where the margin was less than 10 points, memorable games but more memorable for me for edwards v greig...the teenage superstar to be against the dual brownlow medallist legend...youve got to remember by the end of 1975 Greig was bona fide legend already..in fact .he was a legend before leigh matthews was,thats how i remember it
The North-Richmond battles through that era probably do get a bit forgotten thanks to the Hawthorn and Collingwood rivalries. Bartlett/Bourke/Hart/Wood/Sheedy/Clay/etc was a pretty stacked side.
