Abba went to North Melbourne in 1982. He played 82-83 at North before transferring to Collingwood for 3 seasons. Tony Hannan was teaching in Whyalla and Jack got him back for the finals one maybe two of those years. Geof Motley and Chicken Hayes both played in 7 Grand Finals in their first 7 seasons and won 6 of them. Not sure that has been done before or since.Pretty sure Bruce Abernethy played in premierships in his first 2 years then moved to North Melbourne in 1981.
However Tony Hannan played only 40 games but was a member of 3 premiership sides ! 77 79 80.
As I watched Jack Hayes I kept asking myself, is this guy any better than Brett Eddy? Great at SANFL level but is he up to AFL standard?Is Jack Hayes better than Ladhams
