Oh crap. I thought today was Wednesday.

Can still do the 93 GF tomorrow?

Is it on kayo?

Mason says hi.

So we’ll do this tonight. Will post a link about 30 mins before hand

92 reserves, or do you hate TD?

If everyone is happy to stick to the original plan I am.also happy with that.

Just push it all back one day.

92 is well worth watching


Late 1992 saw the senior team lose by 160 points to Hawthorn. But in the weeks after that you saw a stack of kids come into the senior team, and immediately star.

There are almost no players in this squad who didn’t play substantial senior games, either before or after.

Plus Willie ■■■■!

Denis Pagan was our coach.

This would be the final match of Terry Daniher… and he made it worthwhile.

Dustin Fletcher played for the Western Jets in the Under 18 Grand Final prior to the reserves Grand Final.



The opposition are perhaps less historically stacked, but there are some very handy players there.

Melbourne’s 3rd Reserves GF in a row.

Lost to FC in 1990
