Canterbury’s team of legends

As we work to assemble Canterbury’s Greatest ever side over the next 12 months, we will from time to time throw in brief bio’s of former clubs legends, so you can see some of the greats who have donned the jumper, and see how many went on to play VFA and AFL at its highest levels. Ex Canterbury boys who captained AFL teams, played in AFL premierships, coached at AFL level, won All Australian honours, and two who became presidents of AFL clubs.

Then we will have a competition for people to pick the best team from a shortlist with bios with a prize for the winner.
