    It's time to start thinking of recruiting another Tasmanian key position forward to continue the Apple Island Punt Road tadition. Royce Hart - Michael Roach - Matthew Richardson - Jack Riewoldt have been the main man for the last 50 years. There was a short break between Roach's retirement (1989) and Richardson's recruitment (1992 Draft), but the chain has basically been unbroken. I'm not sure if Roach got to Richmond whilst Hart was still there, but it would have only been a one year gap at the most.

    One of our kids, if not THE best, is a North Melbourne Next Gen kid so he’s taken.
    Not a key forward though.

    Disco began in 1977, which was Hart's final year. They played 7 games together before Royce retired after Round 16.

    Thanks Readie9. That crosses some Tiger Trivia off my Bucket List. It looks like the short gap between Disco Roach and Richo Man was the only gap in the 50+ year Tasmanian Key Forward era.

    Yes. How did I forget him. He debuted in 1990 when Roach retired at the end of the 1989 season.

    Well, as you state above. Benny Gale started as a key forward too. Disco played his last game in Round 16, 1989 and Benny played his 1st game in Round 1, 1990. So, in effect we had a key Tasmanian forward play from Royce Hart's debut in 1967, through to the 2017 Grand Final, apart from the 6 games between Disco retiring & Benny's debut. It's really an amazing scenario.

    If memory serves me well - Benny Gale was drafted in the 1987 National Draft, but didn't play at all in the seniors in 1988 or 1989. Was there a reason for this? Did he stay in Tasmania and play there in the late 80's?

    Yes, he was drafted in 1987, and apparently he did come over in 88, but I found somewhere that stated that 'persistent injuries and illness' prevented him from making his debut until Round 1, 1990. I can't find any specific details though.

    Richard Lounder would have kept him out of the side anyway ........... HA!!!
