Team of the half-century

11 June 2013

At the event of the half century the 720 strong 50th year Ball, the team of the half century was finally revealed.

The selection panel chaired by John Hughes and including, Michael Perrett, Mick Iannazzo, Ray King and Terry Davis were faced with an impossible task. How to fit the 115 players named in the five teams of the decade, into one star studded team of the half century.

With clear cut criteria to guide them, these five wise men approached this task with great integrity and diligence. Of course this team will never run out and play together and no doubt debate will linger regarding inclusions and exclusions.
However everyone is in agreement, that this truly is a super team, that represents the very best of onfield talent and leadership, representing a club that is proudly celebrating 50 wonderful years of football and friendship.
A team of the half century jumper with players listed, will be hung over the bar in the pavilion in coming days, ahead of our next big home game vs Collegians on June 29th.

Congratulation to all those named in the team of the half century and the 5 teams of the decades , and a special thanks to the selection panel for a very difficult job very well done.
