      Cannot really remember the team in the 70s and in the early 80s I was still a kid with rose coloured glasses for talent. From the mid 80s is my team.

      Mini
      A Walker (I am biased loved to watch him play and had to find a spot for him and he can alternate with Mini)
      Jennings
      SKD
      Sing
      Freddy (c)
      Horrie (vc)
      RIcko
      Fitzy
      McGahan
      Morley
      Friend
      JWH

      Bench
      Maubs (I had to find a spot for him)
      Moa
      Fletcher
      Salvo

      I didn't consider SBW, Wing or Sheck (Not clubmen in my eyes) you could say the same for Walker, Fletch and Sing but I feel they were more loyal to the club than those others (they were more or less squeezed out and Walker went to Rah Rah). Also Artie as even though I saw him play towards the end of his career I cannot really remember much now it was such a haze. Same for others pre 1982-83.

          Andrew Walker is also a favourite of mine, and possibly the most naturally gifted footballer I've seen at the Tricolours.

          He's still playing good footy at five-eighth for West End in the A-Grade comp here in Ipswich...

            5-Bill Mullins
            6-Brad Fittler
            7-Kevin Hastings
            8-Ron Coote

            11-Big Artie (c)
            12-Jeff Mastermann
            13-Craig Salvatori

            15-John Peard
            16-JWH
            17-Sonny Bill Williams

            I know Mastermann was a one season wonder, but what a year he had.
            Was tempted to go for Friend, but too annoyed at bombing out this year.
