Decent team! Imagine if all those blokes actually reached their potential. I’ll make a team later but some players that spring to mind include:

Ryan Bastinac, Shane Harvey, Chad Jones, Adrian McAdam, Shannon Motlop, Nathan O’Keefe, Keenan Reynolds, David Trotter and Ben Warren

Spargo was a pretty good player want he?

Graeme Atkins was another. Looked like a world beater, got injured, and f’ed off to Collingwood.

Kekka's brother Michael. Tragically hit by a car and killed. Before my time, but apparently had enormous ability.

Yes. Very tragic! Allegedly even more talented than Sam and brother, Brian.

Not sure John Byrne belongs in this side, even if his career was cut short. Played 98 games including the 77 premiership and the 76 and 78 Grand Finals.
He was basically cut down at 23. His start to 1979 was phenomenal and looked to be going to a new level.
