Hall of Fame honour for Clarence legends
Updated Wed May 6, 2009 2:55pm AEST
"Clarence's 1993 premiership side will be inducted into Tasmanian football's hall of fame as this year's legendary team.
The win over North Launceston started an era of success for the Ross, who played in 13 grand finals in 15 years, winning nine flags.
Gavin Cooney played in all of them and says the '93 premiership was his first at any level of football.
"Everyone says relief, it was relief you know, you were just glad it was over in the end," he said.
"The build up to the day was long.
"The morning of the game was horrendous, just nerves."
Former club president, Doug Davey, says the professionalism of coach, Stevie Wright, was a key component of the Roos success in 93.
"Just an enormous day, an enormous week."
"Steve would be the sort of bloke though that he probably trained the next morning, win a Grand Final on Saturday night, get up Sunday morning and go for a run," he said.
