Almanac Lunch (May 12): Is Percy Jones the greatest living Tasmanian?

It’s a good question.


Come armed with your argument. Name the Tasmanians ahead of Perc. I can’t think of one. Make your suggestion via a comment below.

All welcome.


North Fitzroy Arms – in good form.


  1. Bob Morrow says:

    John Bowe – racing driver. Started at 16 & a year later won his first State Championship . Has won the Australian Drivers , Australian Sportscar , Australian Touring car Championships & Bathurst twice. Is still winning races in Historic Car Racing . Now that’s a Champion

  2. steve todorovic says:

    yes, but could he have mistaken a goal post for the ball and hence given us the single most hilarious mistake ever made on a footy field!

  3. Brent Crosswell? Played in flags, was an outstanding player, and every bit as eccentric as old mate Perc.

    Probably a draw.

  4. Shane John Backx says:

    Peter Hudson or…….BOOOONIEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!

  5. In the race for second, I’d nominate Tim Lane and Martin Flanagan.

  6. Phillip Dimitriadis says:

    Richo, Roy Cazaly and Darrel Baldock rate, but nowhere near James ‘Charlie’ Manson.
    Max Walker, Boonie and Ricky Ponting?

  7. Shane John Backx says:

    Living mate, living.

  8. Phillip Dimitriadis says:

    Oops – sorry Shane. Is ‘Charlie’ Manson still alive? If so, he’s my nomination !!
    BTW Max Walker only stopped living quite recently…

  9. Peter_B says:

    Goggins – Matthew, Billy, Lindy, Charlie.

  10. Shane Johnson says:

    Graeme “Grub” Hay the undersized CHB for Toorak in the late 70’s early 80’s!!

  11. The Royster. Best footballer ever.

    For blow-ins, maybe Bob Brown

    For expats, maybeI should do a SCoMo and nominate myself?
