Since capturing three straight Capricornia Australian Football League premierships in 1973-4-5 the Mud Crabs have been fairly regular finals contenders but have only added another three flags. The club’s most recent premiership success in 2004 came as the culmination of a sequence of near misses stretching back to the 2000 season. More recently they reached the 2016 grand final but lost by 66 points to Yeppoon. In 2017 they tumbled down the six team ladder to fifth before succumbing to the ultimate indignity of a wooden spoon in 2018. Subsequent campaigns have been similarly unconvincing.
