    Suggest Nick Smith with the Swans too, played with and against Cyril at school, has a Premiership medal.

    I think in 2014 or 13 Great Scot mag did an update article on 100 Scotch boys who had played VFL/AFL, could be worth tracking down

    Lots of good Cyril early info in Emma Quayle’s wonderful book on the Draft a few years back

  2. Paul Mishura says:

    As at the end of the 2017 season, 173 Scotch boys have played at least one Senior game in the VFL (now AFL) competition since 1897.

    These are links to articles about all of the Scotch players up to 2010:
