Can someone rank them? I remember a fellow called Paul Werner. Was he a recruit?

From which era AR- 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, 00s or 10s?
60s- Eric Gorman, John Turnbull, Ken Bagley, Cyril Litterick, Max George
70s- Garry Sidebottom, Bob Beecroft, Max George, Mark Olsen, Simon Beasley
80s- Simon Beasley, Brent Hutton, Garry Sidebottom, Peter Sartori, Kevin Caton, Stan Nowotny
90s- Troy Ugle, Scott Cummings, Kevin Caton, Jason Ball
00s- Ashley Hansen, Tim Geappen, Adam Lange, Adam Hunter, Daniel Wulf, Chris Maguire
10s- Tim Geappen, Ashley Hansen, Ricky Cary, Corey Gault

Pre the 1960s Ted Holdsworth was not only our best key forward but could nearly lay claim to our best player with the likes of Krepp, Anderson, Pearce etc up until the arrival of the likes of Walker, Slater, Bunton, Bagley, Castledine, Nesbit, Brown, Lawson, Gray, Turnbull et al in the late 50s early 60s era!

AR the late Paul Werner came to SD from Manuka (ACT) Ed Blackaby's old club for 1 season in 1983 (14 games, 41 goals) but was not selected for the GF after playing in the Preliminary Final thumping of SF and Stan Nowotny was chosen instead for his final WAFL game.

BH -- sad that Werner has passed away -- he would have been handy at Subi around that time.
Holdsworth must have been a bloody good player, perhaps comparable to Ted Tyson from WP?

Did not he get picked in the best ever side ahead of Beasely?

My favourites:

Hutton
Sartori
Cummings
Caton
and, of course, Stan Nowotny

Holdsworth was outstanding. First to 100 goals for the 1937 season - round 15 - but injury meant he played little later in the season and three others passed him (five kicked 100 or more that season). He became an accomplished fullback after the war.

If SD “poached” Ken Marshall, Mick Johns & Adam Lange from $U then it was well and truly multiplied many times over the other way over the years with Haydn Bunton Jnr, Keith Slater, Rod Brown, Tom Floyd, Tony Cope, Fintan Maguire, Scott Douglas, Dylan Nelson, Wade Twomey, Brett Robinson, Ray Daniels et al :blush:
