Billy Brownless Reminisces About Playing Richmond Back When Gary Ablett Was Dominant

Billy Brownless had a pretty good record against Richmond — he faced off against them 12 times for 11 wins and one loss, with Bill booting 31 goals in those matches.

But that’s nothing on Gary Ablett, who booted 117 majors in 20 matches against the Tigers for 18 wins.

Billy reminisced about those days on the Rush Hour today.

LISTEN HERE:



“When we used to catch the bus and play Richmond… we would not be thinking ‘Gee I wonder how we’re gonna go today’,” Billy said.

“We honestly would think ‘how much will we win today by and how many goals will Gary kick?’

“A couple of times when we were playing he kicked 14 against Richmond… we used to smash Richmond.

“How times have changed!”
