    Re: How good was....Brian Royal?

    Royal and Alvin both played in the 1981 premiership for Bairnsdale so it's got to be him.

    Re: Bulldogs By the Numbers

    Ironically I was reading a footy book just the other day and it mentioned that it happened to Doug Wade in the late '60s. It was against Carlton I think and cost Geelong the chance to win the game.
