With the footy now back in full swing, and nine games on the weekend, 12 of the greatest game players of all time took to the field. The two exceptions were Robert Murphy who has missed most of the season with a serious injury, and Nick Dal Santo, a late withdrawal for the Kangaroos in the match against West Coast Eagles.
Of those who took the field, Corey Enright moved past Simon Black and joined Nathan Burke in equal 31st position.
Nick Riewoldt moved past Glen Archer and Ben Hart to be equal with Jack “Captain Blood” Dyer, Adelaide’s Mark Ricciuto and Stephen Silvangi (whose son recently started his career with Carlton).
Drew Petrie consolidated his position in the Top 50 of all time and relegated Tim Watson to 51st overall.
Scott Thompson moved to within 1 game of the 300 game club, whilst Jimmy Bartel and Sam Mitchell moved past Wayne Campbell and Lennie Hayes and within 2 games of the magic number!
Gary Ablett, who unfortunately suffered a possible year ending injury, moved into a tie with Peter Riccardi for 93rd spot on the list.
James Kelly moved past Ryan O’Keefe and Peter Bell whilst Brendan Goddard drew level with Mathew Scarlett in 99th position, and forced Richard Osborne and Tony Libratore out of the Top 100.
