How Saints used to ensure a wet Moorabbin field


Who remembers the old, wet and muddy days down at Moorabbin?

As St Kilda is set to move back to their traditional habitat, the stories of the former playing ground are starting to be dug back from old stalwarts of the club.

Listen to Tony Jewell tell some old yarns from Moorabbin with Garry Lyon and Tim Watson in the player below!
