premiership afl

5

Dustin Fletcher will become the third player in VFL-AFL history to reach 400 games this weekend. Throughout his career he has…

…had 166 teammates
…played with or against 15 of the current 18 AFL coaches
…played in 234 wins, 160 losses and 5 draws
…missed 123 games, meaning it would’ve been possible he’d have been playing his 522nd today

Other fun facts:
- 1,967 players have debuted since Fletch made his
- 25 players on GWS’ list and 12 on Essendon’s hadn’t even been born yet
- he is almost certain to become the leading AFL games record holder, with only Kevin Bartlett (403 games) and Michael Tuck (426) ahead of him.
- He has won one best & fairest, two AFL premierships and two All-Australians

Congratulations on 400 games, Fletch; may there be many more to come!
