Yes Scrappy, Adrian Pope, son of Rodney as far as I'm aware.
I think in that game Port also kicked the first goal of the second quarter so it was 10 goals to nil. I'm pretty sure it's our biggest comeback in my lifetime.
It's also the game in which Scott Simister took his legendary hanger in the goal square.
We also came from 34 points down in the last quarter to beat Port at Richmond in 1983, which is one of the most enjoyable wins in my memory.

I was at this game - at 1/4 time, My brother and I said to each other...."I don't think we are out of this!!". After the siren, West Adelaide Matriarch, the late Jean Luke, pretty much picked me up off the ground in a giant bear hug........ Happy days! Very Happy

RON ANDREWS

Played for Essendon, Collingwood AND West Adelaide
Played 151 games for ES/CO and missed 24 through suspension
His last coach at CO was Johnny Cahill
John 'lets back Jack' Cahill was coaching WA in 1985 , Ron Andrews came over to continue his liason with Cahill that season
Andrews kicked 51 goals that season , WA finished 3rd


Hers a yarn by Max Foran who came up against Ron Andrews when they were playing in the bush
Andrews had been playing up forward , he was called to play on the ball

" As soon as Ronnie got to the centre the complexion of the game had changed
He hit our young blokes at will and our skipper seemed to lose the plot
For one thing he had me, a bloke who would cut his teeth on the rough and tumble of VFA football, right out of the action
Every time I would creep nearer he would tell me to get back to position near the boundary line
My thoughts wandered, perhaps distracted by the stench from the pig farm next to the oval, when all off a sudden I looked up and realised Ronnie had aimed for me
Here was my chance to be a hero and turn the game around
I dropped Ronnie Andrews on the boundary line at Curlwaa Oval
Funny game cricket !
Ronnie went on to make 38 not out in about 15 minutes and Wentworth cricket club 4ths easily beat my team Mildura East."

TOTAL AMOUNT OF REPORTS
I have no way of confirming this but here goes
Which 3 SANFL players have been reported the most in the 1980-1990s era ?

In my time I would have thought, Granger, MacIntosh, Klomp & Salisbury, sorry if I’ve mis spelled any of the names, I presume Granger has the most games suspension because he effectively was given life after his last misdemeanour

I think you are around the mark, Bayman. Years ago there was an article stating that Macintosh had been reported the most times in SANFL history with Salisbury and Klomp filling the placings.. Surprisingly Granger wasn't reported that often but he would have only played about 5 or 6 seasons.

Bill Sutherland was the South Adelaide coach 1961-1963
During his coaching stint he once painted his house in Blue and White colors !

So he's the man who took South bottom the year before Kerley took them top.

Bill Sutherland was sacked part way through 1963 and he was replaced by Denis Parham.

Thanks RR.
I reckon I might have gone to school with one of Denis Parham's kids.

Interesting to note season before Bill Sutherland coached
The previous coach had them for one season
18 played
3 won
15 lost
That coach was the legendary Fos Williams

In 1963 Bill Sutherland was replaced during the season by Dennis Parham
The question I ask, is did Bill Sutherland produce a core of footballers , that were improving leading up to Neil Kerleys 1964 premiership season?

I would think Bill must of with a few of the players , much the same way Robert Oatey[1968-1973] produced some good footballers inherited into Bob Hammonds Norwood 1975 premiership team
