Welcome Sam.

Your Dad was one of my favourites, can’t wait to watch you play!

Someone who knows more than me - is Sam meant to be a ruck or KPP?

Nope, Allan Edwards played for us in 1984, his father Arthur Edwards played for us 1950-61 and his grandfather Frank "Dolly" Aked played for the dogs between 1925 and 1932.

Man, that's a real deep cut.

This will be the tallest Bulldogs team I can ever recall and it’s not even close. We will have 3 players well over 200cm tall (207, 205, 204) Martin just under (199) and then a few hovering around 197/198 (Bruce, JUH, Gardiner all 197, Keath I think is 198). I like this a lot. We now seem to have a dearth of smalls??????

Ok this is weird. Sam is the first f/s of a player I can remember vividly.

Yeah I had the same reaction with Libba. I didn't remember much of Wallis and Cordy moved on from us three years before I was even born. Meanwhile Libba Snr. was one of my faves growing up.

Some very nice vids of Sam on the Bulldogs site, including the List Management team’s visit to the Darcy home. Who is the bloke that did most of the talking?
