Chris Pym's and Bryan Wood's 2nd numbers
Pym got 10 after 51.


Yes correct

That's leaves Bryan Wood's other number than 16

Princess's other number was worn in the '72 final series and is number .... 37

Of course he then grew a moustache and promptly changed his number to 16, (and because Michael Green rejoined the Tigers after his year off).

I think Jack Dyer wore 30 in his first game where he spent either the entire game on the bench or had a very minimal run against North which to this day is still our greatest winning margin over any side. 168 points to be exact. There is a famous photo from his first game where he is running down the race and some bloke in a coat and hat is pointing at him like he was some kind of odditty. He went to number 17 for the remainder of his career after that.


The famous dyer pic of him running out from the race and supporter pointing his finger at him, wasnt from his first ever game, but rather was Rd 1 1946 vs Fitzroy and it appears in 'The TIgers: A Century of League Football' on Page 73
