Two AFL stars returned to their roots last weekend to celebrate 10 years since Bunbury’s drought-breaking 2007 colts premiership.

West Coast Eagles wingman Lewis Jetta and Melbourne defender Neville Jetta were at the Bunbury colts reunion to celebrate alongside their former teammates.

Both players went on to be drafted two years later, with Neville taken by Melbourne with pick 51 in the 2008 AFL Draft, while Lewis was selected by the Sydney Swans with pick 14.

The two Jettas were not the only successful players to come from the side, with Eaton Boomers’ Hayward Medallist Jace Cormack also playing in the premiership.

Donnybrook captain Shane Cristaldi was also part of the team and named best on ground while both the Jettas were in the best players in the nine-point win.
