Run into Bill Dempsey this afternoon, we normally have a few drinks but today Bill had to run. He was going to Bushy Taylors 70th birthday party. That brought me memories of a game between South’s and West Perth at Fremantle oval. South’s were packed with so much talent; it must have been the middle seventies. Well, Geoff Bushy Taylor played full back and Mark Jackson played full forward. Mal Brown told me it was Jackson’s first league game. In the first quarter the ball came into the South’s forward line a number of times and on two occasions Bushy hipped Jacko and took the mark on his chest on a one and one contest. Jacko wasn’t happy. It was late in the first quarter and again Bushy hipped Jack and took a chest mark. Jacko went nuts, he hoofed the ground, he huffed and he puffed and then he did his famous hand stand in the square. The crowd laughed, Bushy laughed. The legendry Mark Jackson hand stand originated at South Fremantle oval, great club, great oval. HAPPY BIRTHDAY BUSHY.

Winger, did Taylor play in the 1975 premiership. I remember he was a very good fullback.

Vague memories that he had a booming torpedo punt that regularly got to the centre square - and wing mate Jacko was first over here in 1979 so it must have been that year

i pretty sure Geoff signed to play with Subiaco in 1980 but it did not eventuate. one thinks he might have thought better of it, retirring instead.

Cesspit; yep, he did play in the 1975 premiership side

Yes you are right Ark, I remember that. We didn’t have much luck back then, swapping quality (Randall, Dimmer etc) for quantity, blokes on their way out duda, levitski, durnthaler etc

DG -- i am with you, although in farness to the club, the ep players you mentioned were premiersip players just two years before. i would have kept Duda, he might have been able to help out munro a bit; the rest, I think Armstrong got pretty right weilding his axe as he did.
