Spelly, can you please advise where West's round one loss ranks among its worst round one losses; and where does it rank among first round losses by the reigning premier? Thanks

1) Equal 6th behind 1903, 2002, 1937, 1938, 1980 and alongside 1925

2) Equal 2nd behind: 92 pts 1995 Rd 1 Port 11.15 Glenelg 27.11 (also the highest losing margin by a Grand Finalist)
And equal with 1935 Rd 1 Glenelg 11.11 North 22.19

Spelly, I know I'm a masochist but surely that is the all-time worst start to a SANFL season by a reigning premier.

After two rounds by average losing margin it would be, but for a losing streak it would need to extend to six

Has this happened other than these 2 instances in the SANFL ?

In all three cases, the losing team in round 2 had won in round one.

I know that betting on footy was illegal in 1976 but I know someone who backed North in round 2 of 1976 at odds of 20 to 1.

Possible NT players to play in the SANFL

Post by rdhart4 on Sun Apr 24, 2016 4:11 pm

Could some tell me if the following players played in the SANFL and their total games for the club/clubs they played for. Their playing careers would be around what I have put in brackets

Gus Wanganeen (not Kevin) from Wanderers (1975 -1989)
Ali Muir from Darwin Buffaloes (1965 - 1976)
Both maybe played with Central Districts
Lance White from Pioneers/Southern Districts/St Marys/Darwin (1974 - 1989)
Arch Wilkey Waratahs (1972 - ?)
Both maybe played with North Adelaide
Peter Ivanoff from Waratahs (1981 - 1988)
Maybe played with South Adelaide
Graeme Smith from Pioneers (Alice Springs) 1989 - 2004
maybe played with both South Adelaide and West Adelaide
Matthew Whelan from Darwin Buffaloes (1996 - 2010)
Drafted to Melbourne from Woodville West Torrens (probably played around 1996 - 1999 with WWT)
Norm Murphy from Nightcliff (1990 - 2004)
Maybe played with Sturt

I know you have a list of players on here but it does not include their games. The WAFL have one it is WAFL FootyFacts and lists every player that has played in Western Australia and their clubs and is very helpful.

Wish SANFL had one listing all players clubs and their games and goals. I know Port Adelaide does. Glenelg put out a book a few years ago called "The Pride of the Bay" which listed their players and games and goals up to that time. The works been done I wish the club historians would put their names on their web sites.

Ali Muir played for Central District. I think that his nick name in the SANFL was Casper.

Lance White played for North Adelaide in 1982. He wouldn't have played more than about 6 games. He came down from the Northern Territory with big Les Turner who actually showed a great deal of promise.

Arch Wilkey played about 70 games for North Adelaide from 1966 until about 1973. He played in North's 1971 premiership side.

Peter Ivanoff definitely played for South

You may be interested in the following obituary which appeared on the official NAFC website in early October, 2007. I think the greatest, Barrie Robran had a hand in writing the tribute.

Vale, Arch Wilkey

North Adelaide premiership player Arch Wilkey died on the 29 th, September at the age of 61 after a long battle with an inoperable brain tumour. Arch played 73 games for North Adelaide between 1966 and 1974 and was a member of the 1971 premiership side. He was a mercurial footballer who epitomised the North Adelaide style of the late 1960s. North were renowned as a high marking, long kicking side full of brilliant players and Arch fitted the mould perfectly. It is contended that Arch was the first player to make the number 23 as famous as it is today – being followed by the likes of Michael Jordan, Dermott Brereton, Shane Warne, David Wildy and Andrew McLeod. No doubt each was inspired by Arch’s brilliance as an athlete and chose to wear “his” number.

In his early career he played mainly at half forward but when Mike Patterson came to the club Arch played more as a defender. Injury curtailed his career. He missed the complete 1972 season with a knee injury, and after playing in the 1973 preliminary final missed the Grand Final with injury. He retired in 1974 and moved to Darwin to live. As much as Arch was remembered as a brilliant player, he was also known as a wonderful and happy character. Soon after he moved to Darwin, Cyclone Tracey hit. When asked what it was like, Arch replied that it was almost as scary as playing Port at Alberton.

If there had been such a thing as an Adelaide A-list in the late 1960s, Arch would certainly have been on it. He was well known in Adelaide social circles as the Manager of the Swinger Disco which was held at the Hotel Australia (now the Adelaide International Hotel).

Arch, who was selected in South Australian state squads in the late 1960s, returned to Adelaide to live in 2001. During his time at North Adelaide he was one of the most popular and well-liked players and all of his team-mates and many friends at North Adelaide are deeply saddened by his passing.

Arch never married and is survived by his three sisters, Edna, Doreen and Lorna. The North Adelaide Football Club wishes to extend its sincerest sympathies to Arch’s three sisters {who all call him “Bill”} and assure them all that he will be sadly missed by all his friends and former team-mates at Roosterland…….but never forgotten.

ONYA Archie boy.

I only have games and scorers from 1983; Ivanoff played all 23 premiership matches with South in 1983 and scored nothing

Graeme Smith doesn't appear in any records I have

Whelan played 20 matches in 1999 and scored 3.10

I have a David Murphy play 2 matches for Sturt in 1996 for 0.1 (so unless if he also goes by Norm) Norm didn't play

West Adelaide 2016—a different kind of record

Post by SimonH on Sat May 21, 2016 10:06 pm

West Adelaide 2016 are of course racking up unwanted records re a reigning premier's performance—but when reviewing last night's game I noticed 2 different but related kinds of record they might be in the running for.

In both rounds 7 and 8 they lost by a score of 73-100: have any teams scored exactly the same for-and-against in successive rounds, before this?

Then for good measure they lost last night by another 27 point margin (64-91): is this the first time a team has had the same margin and result 3 matches in a row?

Simon its Cube time !!!

Hawthorn have won 3 games in a row this season by 3 points in the AFL

Ryan Willets kicked a massive punt after the last quarter siren
The kick went through for goal
If he had not kicked a goal , then I would not have done this post

RD 7
PA 14-16 [100]
WA 10-13 [73]

RD 8
NA 14-16 [100]
WA 11-7 [73]

RD 9
NW 13-13 [91]
WA 10-4 [64]

2 weeks in a row WA were beaten 100-73
Against Norwood 91-64

Ryan Willets goal means that West have lost 3 consecutive matched by 27 points

3 Cubed = 3x3x3 =27

3 cubed HW + WA
Hawthorns 3 points
West 27 points

27 twice =54

This happened in 1954

RD 1
NA 10-8
WA 10-11

R2
WA 13-9
GL 12-12

RD 3
WT 10-12
WA 10-15

West won 3 games in a row, just as Hawthorn has in 2016 , by 3 points !

1954 Grand Final
PA 11-13 [79]
WA 10-16 [76]

WA lost by 3 points

Two others, one this year and one in 1909:

West Adelaide won the opening three matches of 1954 by 3 points; no others either by all wins or a mixture

They certainly weren't consecutive games but in 2001 North only won 4 games for the year. The first three victories all had a margin of 23 points. In the last minor round game they led by 23 points with 5 minutes to go before Norwood scored a couple of late goals and alas North only won by 15 points to spoil the statistical oddity. On the other hand at least the win handed the wooden spoon to Glenelg.

Wooooah! Awesome work, all. Particularly Scrappy, with that epic of bizarre statistical coincidences.

I love the fact that the identical-points-in-successive-weeks record hadn't been touched for a lazy 107 years, and now has been done twice in the first half of the season.

They've certainly got that one in the bag. Far less certain is whether they'll be worse across the whole season than the famous Glenelg FC of 1935. I kind of suspect not.

As well as copping a few awful canings (and their sole victory being by just 6 points), Glenelg 1935 were not necessarily pushovers—at least not in every quarter of a match. They would regularly stay with or outperform opponents for 2 or 3 quarters, but still lose by big margins based on individual appalling quarters, for example the 37 point loss to West in R5 where outscoring West for 3 quarters was more-than-offset by giving up 10.7 to 1.4 in Q2. They also sometimes seemingly went out of their way to cultivate losses in matches you'd expect they should have won, for example losing to West Torrens in R13 11.19(85) to 14.5(89), or leading Sturt (who would go on to win a final) 7.5 to 1.1 at quarter time in R15, but proceeding to lose the game comfortably. They wound up 1-16 and 39.26%.

I reckon that West will go on to win more than one game. But if they don't, then in the playoff for worst reigning SANFL premier of all time, they'll struggle to get their percentage above 39% on current form.

This game was brought up by the C7 team
It was Merv Keanes first game as coach of Sturt

RD1
1985

NW 6-4...10-7...18-13...22-18 [150]
ST 1-4.....4-9.....9-9. ...22-15 [147]

Sturt kicked 13-6[84] in the last quarter and still lost
Would that 84 points be the highest total kicked in a last qtr without winning the match in the SANFL ?

Both sides totaled an aggregate of 113 points for the last quarter

RD 10

NW 5-5...7-9...10-11...11-12 [78]
ST  5-1...7-4....11-5... .12-6 [78]


9 rounds after that last quarter 113 point aggregate the same teams totaled 14 points for the last quarter !

I heard that being said on Channel 7 with regards to Merv Keane, and knew someone got some wrong information somewhere, because 12 goals is the most kicked by a losing side in a quarter.  The draw is correct; the 2.2 (14) quarter was the lowest scoring quarter of the highest scoring year on record.  However, I knew where you and Channel 7 got the 1st Round score from.  http://australianfootball.com/seasons/season/sanfl/107/premiership%2Bseason/3/3/1985

Sturt kicked 12.15; the scorers were: C.Graham 3.3, Davies 3.0, Paech 2.0, Gumley, Martin 1.2, Benson, Wark 1.0, Ey 0.3, Derrington, Smith, Spiel 0.1, Rushed 0.2.

Thanks for that Spelly. I thought I had early onset Alzheimers because I can vividly remember watching the replay of that game. Late in the last quarter Craig Balme when kicking out somehow managed to hit Rick Davies standing the mark on the chest. Davies played on and goaled. The cameras panned to the bench where Neil Balme and I think Glenn Rosser thought it hilarious and were laughing heartily. I don't think they would have reacted like that if it were a close game.
