A new year - a new quiz

Can you name these Tigers ???

 :thumbsup

1. I was born in 1958 and played 6 games for 3 goals in the early 1980's. I wore 2 numbers in my career. Numbers 32 & 16

2. I was a cult hero to the fans and loved by my coach. I started my career with another club. I played 45 games for the Tigers in the mid 1990's

3. I was born in 1969 and played 4 games for the Tigers in 1993. Most tiger fans cannot believe I even played 4 games. I wore jumper number 42

4. I was born in 1980 and played just 4 games after an outstanding junior career. I kicked 1 goal and wore number 31.

5. I am recently retired. I was born in 1980. My first jumper number was 37

First player I thought of was David Honybun but he was late 80's.

John Howat?
I took my son to an Auskick footy clinic one Sunday morning that he turned up to (when he was still at Melbourne). He was very late and very hungover.  :cheers Luckily for him there was only one Melbourne supporter so he didn't get mobbed.  :D
He was spewing (almost literally) when he saw it was Jim Stynes' number on the kid's back and not his.

1. Geoff Martin played circa 1980-1981 he was number 32. Can't remember him as number 16.

2. I was leaning towards Mark Neeld but don't think he played as many as 45 and was not a cult hero like Johnny Howat. So Johnny Howat I'll say also.

3. Ahahahahahaha our mid season pick in 1993. Brad Fox , by gosh he was ordinary and that is being very very generous. Came over to Essendon with big wraps a few years earlier. Tony Lockett nearly choked him to death at Waverley in 1992.

4. James White wore 31 before Chris Hyde. Ezra Poyas wore 26. White debuted in 2000 I think.

5.Ray Hall. Remember his first and only game in 37. Round 22 1999. The night the scoreboard went up in flames and Geischen's last match as coach.
