Strong, dashing and direct, Michael Mansfield was one of the finest half back flankers of the 1990s. Recruited by Geelong from St Joseph's, he could also do a highly effective job on the forward lines when required. A thumping left foot kick, he had the distinction of being the Cats' best player in their losing Grand Final teams of both 1994 (against West Coast) and 1995 (against Carlton). After 181 games and 100 goals for Geelong between 1990 and 1999 Mansfield crossed to Carlton where he added a further 54 games and 18 goals in his final three seasons in the AFL. He achieved AFL All Australian selection in 1994 and 1995.
