It was with great sadness that we heard of the recent passing of Greg Sizer, who played a senior game with Melbourne in 1986, wearing No. 57. Greg’s single game was against Carlton, and he faced David Rhys-Jones, credited with a most competent performance against the much-feared Blue.

Greg Sizer was recruited part of the way through 1986 from Geelong West, and in 1987 made his way to Richmond, playing in the Reserves team. In 1989 and 1990, he played for Werribee.

We are all thinking of Greg’s family and friends, and pass on our condolences.

When adults say, “Teenagers think they are invincible” with that sly, stupid smile on their faces, they don’t know how right they are. We need never be hopeless, because we can never be irreparably broken.
