Time to recruit some more decent left footers. We have Daniher, Merrett, Heppell, Myers, Hocking and Mutch.
I only regard Merrett and Daniher as having a damaging left foot. Myers has a great left foot but gets about 2 touches a match. Heppell is a decent player but his left foot isn’t damaging at all.
Hawthorns premiership team were so skillful (unlike ours) thanks to almost half the team being left foot - plus Sam Mitchell who was both.
Our AFL premiership and grand final teams (since 1990) had the following players.
2000 / 2001 - Ramanaskaus, McVeigh, Long, Lloyd, Lucas, Moorecroft
1993 - O’Donnell, Long, Thompson, Denham, Olarenshaw (Kickett & Cransberg)
1990 - Madden, Long, O’Donnell, Thompson, Cransberg, Anderson, Kickett
