In the 1972 Grand Final, Grump?
I seem to remember Hines was a bit of a loose cannon.

The mid to late 1970's saw a few eastern staters relocate their playing careers to WA such as:

Dean Herbert - Perth
Vince Catoggio - Subiaco
John Wise - South Fremantle
Noel Carter - South Fremantle
Wayne Delmenico - South Fremantle
Ian Thomson - East Fremantle
Colin Waterson - Perth/East Fremantle
Bruce Tschirpig - East Fremantle/Perth
Wayne Duke - East Perth/Claremont
Ben Jager - West Perth
John Begg - Subiaco/South Fremantle

Can't remember what year Gordon Casey went to Swan Districts - might have been 1978

Southerner, we also recruited a fella called Andrew Vanderfeen. He turned into a real dud.Played like he had a broom stick suck up his ,you know where.I saw him play in a scratch match ar Fremantle oval and thought WOW, we have a ripper here.He took about 15 marks.But that turned out to be more than he took all year.
But I believe he went back to Tassie and became a legend of the game down there.

Yes, Dean Herbert was an off-beat character with issues back in Victoria.
He came to Lathlain in 1976 and stayed only one season but in that time had a huge impact on winning the flag for us that year.

Don't forget Verdun Howell everybody, captain coach of the Tigers I read as a kid. Was Claremont's effort in 1972 a fluke? It was after all, just one year before the biggest fluke of all in WAFL football.

Im sure Ben Jagger came from Palmyra. He nearly played with Old Easts with his mate Mick Jez but we did get a couple of blokes, Noel Mugivan & Phill Spock Bradmore.

Yeah I do remember him - came over the same time as Mark Jackson
He was 18 I think and way way out of his depth I thought - but in real honest fairness WA footy was bloody strong in that era and a few defenders sorted him out pretty quickly

Another bloke that came over was Enzo Corvino to Subiaco - this little guy teamed up with Catoggio and seemed a reasonable player , disappeared entirely from the footy planet by the end of his first season there
