A trivia Question
« on: March 16, 2008, 09:16:55 PM »
I was asked a really interesting trivia question the other night.... go it right too BTW  ;D

Outside of Chris Judd - who is the only other player to be appointed Captain of his new Club without having played a game for them?

Oh yeah, he left as captain of Melbourne to captain-coach.

Ditto to mjs's question.

Ross Glendinniing was captain of Eagles in their inaugural year.

Yeah, I was thinking 4 but Jack Dyer played for a hundred years and won heaps of them. KJ recently as captain and I think Brodders won one.

Royce Hart wore no 4 and so did Geoff Raines could be a dark horse.
17 is definentely a front runner. Dyer Barry Richardson did he win a B&F Kane Brodders?
33 David Cloke ? Matty Knights anyone beyond that?

17?

Correct to a degree - Number 17 has won 12 in total, however there is conjecture as to the 1st in #17 because Rhett's book lists Bill Bourke as having no number & no B&F, however the 2007 annual reports lists Bill Bourke winning the B&F as the Tigers of Old book has him in #17.

But saying that Number 17 has won 2 more than the next number.
