PLAYER OF THE WEEK - Bert ThornleyGilbert Thomas “Bert” Thornley will forever be remembered as the player Carlton coach Ron Barassi dragged at half time in the 1970 Grand Final – allowing reserve Ted Hopkins to boot four goals and spark the most famous revival in Grand Final history.
A nuggety rover, Thornley had been captain-coach of East Fremantle in the WAFL prior to joining the Navy Blues at the age of 26 in 1969. By then Barassi had been a fan of Thornley for some time, and was reportedly elated when the young veteran agreed to terms. Happy to accept guernsey number 13, Bert made his senior debut for the Blues in a good win over Footscray at the Western Oval in round 3, 1969 – the same match in which David McKay also began his illustrious career.
