Very interesting to note that Beamish is off the ground for Footscray, he's been replaced by Charlie....Charlie.... Stewart from Shepparton who gets his big chance this afternoon on the half forward flank, Quarrell goes into the roving position in the forward pocket

As Eade kicks to full forward, Purser goes up unattended & takes the easiest of marks, will look to get on with the game quickly, this is Alan Kennedy (??) he comes across the face of goals & kicks to Rod McPherson.
