Accolades: Trevor Barker Award (1988), All Australian (1988), St Kilda captain (1987-1995), 11 x Victorian representative, St Kilda Hall of Fame inductee (2007)
As we look back at the men who defined St Kilda in the rough-and-tumble 1990s, none flew the flag more proudly than the late, great Danny Frawley.
Spud epitomised what it meant to wear the red, white and black, and across 240 senior games, that spirit never waned.
He held the title of longest-serving captain at St Kilda until recently, having led the Saints from 1987-1995 in 177 games.
He finished runner-up in the Trevor Barker Award in 1985 and third in 1987, before winning both the club best-and-fairest and All Australian honours in 1988.
Hailing from Bungaree in country Victoria, Frawley represented his state on 11 occasions and was immortalised in the St Kilda Hall of Fame when he was inducted in 2007.
Following his playing career, he spent five years as senior coach of Richmond, before re-joining the Saints in an assistant coaching capacity from 2014-2018.
Frawley tragically passed away on 9 September, 2019, rocking the club to its core and – poignantly – thrusting the welfare of past players into the spotlight, a cause he championed his entire post-playing career.
