Already a veteran of 209 games, Pope had begun his League career with West in 1962, and won that club's Best and Fairest awards in 1964 and 1968. Best remembered as a half-back flanker, he also spent time at full back.

  • The Remarkable Plunketts: Norwood's First Royal Family
  • Historians spend countless hours raking through mountains of dross in the hope of finding a nugget of gold. Our club History Group recently came across a nugget of a different kind - a photograph of the 1893 Norwood and South Australian captain, 'Nug' Plunkett. Henry Archibald Plunkett had a brief, disjointed football career before his untimely death at 27 and no picture of him could be found in years of searching. He was the only one of the 56 Norwood captains since 1878 for whom we had no image.
