Recruiting former number one draft pick Jeff White to Melbourne at the end of 1997 was a coup.

The ruckman didn’t disappoint either, becoming a key figure in the Dees’ rise up the table. Under Neale Daniher, Melbourne went from cellar dwellers to consistent performers and the 2004 All-Australian’s form was pivotal to this.

In this riveting chat with the athletic ruck, White takes a trip down memory lane. He touches on his relationship with Neale, the Grand Final experience in 2000, why the Dees never took that final step to glory, has a cheeky laugh at Jeff Farmer’s infamous red boots story, plus a whole lot more from those years.
