You reckon we’ll get a special junper made up for his 300th?
Never considered it. Perhaps they would, could certainly flog it. Not sure what it would be though, other than maybe some initials on the back or similar.

I would rather the club do something like placards on every seat or similar, so it has a really good visual effect, but even that I’m not sure they’d be allowed to do due to Covid.

A few clubs have done them, normally just a small nod to the player. eg. Norf did this for West Coast legend, Drew Petries 300th.

Freo did similar for Pav and Mundy from memory.

Mind you, they also did stuff for Fyfe's 150th. Nothing is too low for them.

Just want to say last season especially his last 5 games of the year where very poor.
He didn't have any run or carry or running bounces and kicks.
This year he has been constantly running bouncing the footy and kicking.
He has been so effective

Really?

COVID now being used as an excuse for lots of things.

Apart from the February blip earlier this year there has been no community transmission in WA for months.

I’m calling smokescreen.

Our last 5 games were a slog with all the injuries hitting at once - chances are Hurn was forced to play a more conservative role and may have been feeling the pinch of the ‘fixture crunch’. Would make sense given his consistency over the last 280odd games.

Are you suggesting the club has used Covid as a convenient excuse to retire this?

You think the AFL have kept the covid protocols solely to stop Hurn getting a games record banner?

Just wanted to say I got it wrong and didn't think he'd get there.

Huge love for the bloke and proud to be his sponsor in this renaissance of a year which will see him reach and pass the 300 game mark, our games record holder and 2018 premiership captain.

Love ya Bunga.
