    Players with names suggesting AFL clubs

    I've noticed that the Brisbane Lions have recently re-signed two players with interesting names. Corey Lyons is clearly playing for the right club. Matt Eagles isn't.

    Other players who have had similar names: Paul Roos and Dane Swan.

    What other players have had names suggestive of AFL clubs?

    Craig Bird could have played for the Swans (which he did), Hawks, Magpies, Crows or Eagles. 🦆🦅🦉

    Brad Dick played for the Eagles.
    He reminds him of the guys, close-set, slow, and never rattled, who were play-makers on the team. (John Updike, seeing Josh Kennedy in a crystal ball)

    Didn't we have a Dick at one stage on our list (no pun intended)?

    And Jack Watts is a perfect fit for Port Power.

    Perhaps John Butcher, Tom Lamb and Jed Lamb should have played for North Melbourne - aka the Shinboners?

    Liam Sumner and Ciaran Byrne good fits for Gold Coast Suns? And Aaron Sandilands.

    Hugh Goddard is at the right club, but Brendon Goddard, Christian Petracca, Karl Amon, Mitch Honeychurch & Darcy Parish could also play for St Kilda (the Saints). Also perhaps for non-believers Orazio Fantasia.

    Wylie Buzza(rd) could play for West Coast Eagles. But Tom Hawkins is perfectly placed at the Cats (but perhaps Adam Tomlinson should be playing for the Cats as well).

    Kieran Jack might by name be associated with the Giants, but then as Jack eventually chopped down the magic beanstalk causing the giant to fall to his death the Swans are probably pleased Jack is playing for them!

    But Shane Biggs clearly should be playing for the Giants as, in the tradition of ironic nicknames, Jayden Short could also be at GWS.

    Shane Savage should be playing for Richmond Tigers or Brisbane Lions. Also perhaps Lachie Hunter.
