Bruce Lennon

Came SA (Sturt for memory) after 2 knee recos

Club waited 12 months for him to come over they rated him so highly

Wait was worth, great skills, sure by hand and foot. Good decision maker

In the seaon he played he showed he was going to be a very good player, personally i reckon great player

Along came Jeans and he flicked him for reasons that were never explained

Went back to SA and starred


Never forgot him kicking a goal for us it was one of the best kicks I had ever seen at that time. Stuart Maxfield, Paul Bullus, Chris Bond and Matty Rogers for me were very underrated.

Benny Gale played half back half forward and ruck in his 200+ game career. Though was he under rated hmmm
Totally agree  :thumbsup :clapping
The third quarter, the premiership quarter, it's Dusty time. He starts to shine and then delivers in the most AWESOME fashion.

Paul Broderick
He wasn't underrated. A dead set 🔫..

I reckon he was a gun too, he was one of the cleanest and most efficient ball users I have seen. He was your quintessential two possession player. When he got a possession, the team always got two.

But I also reckon he never got the acclaim he deserved from outside the club.

A fantastic player whose name never comes up when they talk about great midfielders from that era.

To me, he was very underrated.

Chris Bond was very good. Very unheralded.   
Jamie Tape was an excellent player hardly beaten one on one and terribly underrated.
The club that keeps giving.
