Malthouse: I could've played in '82 Grand Final
Mick Malthouse told 3AW Football he believes he could’ve played in the 1982 Carlton vs Richmond Grand Final, despite being ruled out due to a shoulder dislocation in the second semi-final.
”I still believe now that even though it (came) out on that Friday or Thursday, it went back in straight after training. I reckon I could've waited on the other side of the banner and still taken a few out,” Mick Malthouse supposed on 3AW Football.
But despite Malthouse’s assertions that he was match fit, the Richmond club doctor who made the call to drop Mick from the 1982 Richmond Grand Final side thought otherwise.
Dr David Marsh said Malthouse had dislocated his shoulder too badly two weeks prior at Waverley in Richmond’s semi-final against Carlton at Waverley Park.
“There was no way known on God's earth, mate that you were going to get better in two weeks,” Dr David Marsh told 3AW Football.

I was at Richmond training that night and saw Mick go thru the most gruelling test i have ever seen. Watched on as Francis Bourke gave Mick the biggest bumps into his shoulder not even a fit man would have survived.bruce Tuesday 8 May, 2012 - 6:49 PM
