Don't agree on Lake. Buddy Franklin gave him a bath in the 2008 finals. 8 goals and Roughead kicked 4. Watched in frustration as Rocket tried to match up Dale Morris on Buddy to stop the carnage. He might have mastered his position later in his career but he never won us a damn thing and his attitude sucked. Classic was his faked injury in the tied game against Richmond when Minson slotted the goal for him.Great topic to debate.
This won’t be a popular view because he’s turned out to be a headcase but Brian Lake spent 3 years at the Dogs as the competition’s best fullback. I have never ever seen a more dominant player in our jumper and yes, I’m making this call fully aware of how good Scarlett was.
OP had him at 12 which is high but I would want Lake in my best Bulldogs team over at least half the players listed in the top 10.
Buddy is still turning it on while Lake embarasses himself all over the world.
