Numbers

give it to the most courageous and loyal player.

Most courageous trade period player goes to...

give 30 to some potato. disrestecpah

Baguely was premature with 12, may ask for 7 and Ambrose in 12. If not...
7 Cooney
13 Long
30 Giles
33/34 Gwilt
Plenty of chances for the kids to upgrade next few years, Zerret can hang tight

Explains his height. Prem babies tend not to grow as tall.

Honestly think we should retire 30 this year because of Judas.

Just realised the irony that Judas was paid 30 pieces of silver...

We give Giles 30. End of story.

 retiring numbers is stupid.

In honour of Reynolds and Coleman.

 

You could make a case for #1 (Neagle) and #7 (Hutchison), but, the club's 2 greatest ever players would be worth consideration in terms of  retiring their numbers.

Still waiting for a player to be assigned triple digits.

Last player at the elite level to do so was Mal Brown, for Claremont in 1975!

No, ROC & NOB.

So, interesting  speculation,  when does the club actually announce number changes ?

Sometimes they will present jumper numbers to recruits from other clubs earlier but generally in the weeks after the draft.
