I have only ever seen Ablett Snr and Akermanis kick from outside fifty on a regular basis.
Maybe Leon Cameron?
Jarman was brilliant but perhaps didn't have the same penetration as those others on the opposite foot.

Great player, but could Mitchell kick 50 for goal?
Mitchell could kick 50 on the left, with time to balance it was probably a better kick than his right, but certainly longer. He was truly ambidextrous in general play though - kicking off whichever foot suited.

Of our current team, Sicily can comfortably clear 55 on both feet. Don't think anyone else could. Most can't even on their dominant foot.
