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

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

    I read somewhere a few years ago that the Blues did some illegal, underhanded stuff to get Alvin despite being in the Bullies zone, believing that the VFL and Footscray would not have the resources to see Alvin at Footscray, per the Zones at the time.

    And the Blues fans still think they are hard done by!!!!

    Absolutely loved Choco Royal

    Thought he was a terrific player, had great hands, was courageous and just kept putting his head over the ball, very capable around goal
