On the field Noel Kelly was a decision maker but when we put it on him to select his Dream Team from the Western Suburbs teams of the 60's. He shook his head and said, "you're kidding me, how can I pick that team from so many great players". Noel thought long and hard and came up with the following list.
Noel Kelly's Dream Team includes 11 players who played with Noel between 1966 and 1969 .
Fullback: Ken Bray
Wingers: John Mowbray and Dave Barsley
Centres: Gil MacDougall and Peter Dimond
Half back: Tommy Raudonikis
In the forwards Noel picked five from the Kellys Kids era.
Second rowers: Jim Cody and John Armstrong
and the complete Front row: Dennis Meaney , Ken Stonestreet and Doug Walkaden.
So who were the other five including 2 reserves???
