Things that stand out from that 95 season for me all those years later.

The six goal burst in the first six minutes against North on Monday night in round 4.

The draw against Essendon.

The noise atmosphere and joy in the second semi against Essendon. Unforgettable. Painted the town that night. :thumbsup
