Sad news today that Australian Rules football legend Alan Jeans has passed away at the age of 77.

AFL fans will remember Jeans as as a four time premiership coach (three with Hawthorn in the 1980s, 1 with St Kilda in 1966) and his 77 game career with St Kilda.

Saint Kilda’s only premiership in 1966  remains one of the great romantic moments of Australian sport.

Here’s a couple of videos; one of the aftermath of the 1966 Grand Final, the other is of Jeans talking about the 1966 victory.
