Since 1990, only six players have played fewer games than Western Bulldogs youngster Zaine Cordy before winning their first premiership.

The Dogs’ grand final win over Sydney on Saturday was just Cordy’s 11th career game.

In all, the Bulldogs had a staggering nine players in their premiership team who had played 50 games or less.
