Hard Men and Mad Men of the 1960s and 1970s.
The Pratten Park Magpies have come up with a team that has been given the above title. We believe that no other club would ever have had the personnel to create such a team.
A few positional changes have been made.
We will leave it up to the reader to determine into which category each player is more suitable.
Any additional inclusions are most welcome. Maybe you could come up with a team from your era??
