RiG, do you have on hand Robran's stats from the 71 and 72 grand finals?

I have found "unofficial" stats that says that Robran had 30 kicks, 10 handballs, 12 hitouts and 10 marks in the 1971 Grand Final.

Thanks for that, RiG. 40 touches and 10 marks on a wet day, not a bad effort.


52 touches if you count his 12 hitouts, which in itself isn't a bad stat for a midfielder.

And once again not trying to decry Davies game at all, it was unbelievable but Robran was a much better user of the ball by foot.

As great as Davies was, his game was a one off, whereas it was almost par for the course for Robran.

1959 for a comparison, you could live on Prospect Rd and be in Woodville area! :shock:

Always knew the boundaries where I lived as a kid.
I could almost play for 4 different clubs.
Was in the Port Adelaide zone. 100 metres up the road I was in West Torrens, 2km down the road - Central District. 2km in the other direction I was in North Adelaide.

Didn't want to play for any of those clubs only the Bays

Thanks Aerie, very interesting.

Just looking at North's zone - whatever happened to 'Burford Gardens'? Never heard of it.

Ta. Makes sense, based on the map. I bet the Burfords weren't too happy about the change in name, though.

Hoping someone might remember ..

Regarding Neil Craig as a player. He played his last game at Sturt as a player (and captain) in 1986. He played his first game for North in 1988.

What did he do in that year off in 1987? Wikipaedia and other online sources say he was at North from 87-90 and this seems to have become the established fact. However, I recall he stepped away from footy or at least the SANFL in 1987 and did not join North until 1988.

Can anyone remember?

I reckon you're right. Definitely wasn't at North in 1987 in a playing capacity, and I'm quite sure he wasn't there in any off-field role (I'm sure @RobranisGod can confirm), and came on board in 1988 (https://nafc.com.au/history/search?type ... 22ecf7d429). I seem to recall he was involved with the SA Sports Institute possibly around that time?

Definitely at SASI then

This may have something to do with it https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/3569225/ but most of the data was collected in 1986 in the lab in SSS at FUSA.

My guess writing his M SC dissertation (I know first hand what a pedant RT Withers was) and working in a pre-olympic prep year for Seoul.
Let that be a lesson to you Port, no one beats the Bays five times in a row in a GF and gets away with it!!!

I have finally found Barrie's stats for the 1972 Grand Final. He had 21 kicks, 12 marks, 10 handballs, 8 hitouts and 1 goal whilst being tagged for 2 1/2 quarters by Peter Woite and when he had ran him into exhaustion he was tagged by Russell Ebert for the last quarter and a half.
I still don't think that we will ever see Robran's like again.

RIG - do you have any details on how Robran went in State Games?

I've heard his effectiveness was limited due to having to play at CHF in quite a few of the games (I think that's what Russell Ebert mentioned in an interview).

in 1973 the elim and first semi were played at norwood oval, the legs participated in both of them.

why would the sanfl program finals there when norwood were playing, very unfair imho.

surely other grounds could have been used, alberton, woodville or richmond come to mind.

anybody have any clue why this occured?

Port were pretty unhappy about it I think.

No idea why they chose Norwood (or why they didn't have the Norwood games at Adelaide, and the QF and 2SF at Norwood) but this was before Sunday matches, double headers, or Football Park were a thing, so they had to play somewhere.

1973 was the first year of the final 5. All games were played on Saturdays then. As they should be now. And at the same time. I digress.

I guess Norwood was used as it held the most spectators.
