From Wagga Wagga to the MCG, Wayne Carey’s footy story is one for the ages. The dual Kangaroos premiership captain – regarded by many as the greatest to have played the game – settled in for a chat with footy writer John Harms at the Cricketers Arms Hotel in Port Melbourne this week, as part of aflplayers.com.au‘s Legends Series.
Part one – in which Carey reflects on growing up in Wagga Wagga, the influence of his brother and how Denis Pagan got the best out of him – can be seen below.
Part two – in which Carey opens up about North Melbourne’s club culture during the ’90s, being voted the game’s Most Valuable Player and the difficulty of leaving the AFL – can be seen below.
