Subi had a run of Vic imports as captain/coaches during the 70s.

73/74 - the legendary Ross Smith
75 - David Parkin
77/78 - Brian Douge

I think they all came over primarily to enrol or work in the pre-eminent Phys Ed degree then being offered at UWA - just down the road from Subi Oval.

Gary Crouch was a Victorian who came to Subi in the early 70's and was a phys ed teacher at Balcatta High school while I was there. Also Graeme Schultz came from Essendon in 1975 and was forced to sit out the early part of the year ( waiting for a clearance) before almost winning the Sandover Medal despite only playing the last 12 games.

I recall David McKay came over from Carlton but couldn't get a clearance from memory.

Oh the days when WAFL players were gods. I remember the visits to school by players (even though they were EF players) looking up at them in awe, Cassidy was a regular :)

I seem to remember Hines was a bit of a loose cannon.

He may have been Archie, but gee he sure did turn in some impressive performances for the Tigers.He could jump over pack as good as any one.

Yes, Hines was certainly a high flyer, Anchor.
He was a key figure in the Tigers' stellar 1972 season ... until they got to September.
