Robert Powell, we got him from Collingwood in the mid 90’s and he really looked an exciting, skilled, pacey player.
Every game i watch that he plays in, he is tearing it up.
So, what the hell happened? Did injuries kill his career? Fall out with Geish/Frawley?
I rated him when i used to watch him, and still like watching his work these days. Who can help? Who has a fond memory?

Me and my mate nicknamed him “show pony” when he was as playing. I remember him being flashy and when it came off it was a great highlight . Sometimes a bright light on a dark day.
