Only Premier ever to play a 23 game Home & Away season.
Had one of the hardest draws with double ups against; reigning premier, 2nd Brisbane, 3rd Port & 5th Carlton.
Played the 2 clearly struggling sides NM & WC only once and both times away.
Lost clearly best 22 players during Finals; McStay & Adams
Lost key defender Murphy in game before quarter time of GF.
Three finals, three wins.
Not saying one of all time great Premierships, but clearly a very meritorious and deserved one.
Uhhh, isn't it better to have one of your few away games against bad teams? You could play North and West coast on the moon and it wouldn't have mattered.
