One of the best - South Adelaide in the 60s
I know it is hard to compare teams from different eras, but South Adelaide during the 60's had a record hard to beat.
At one time had 54 straight wins including matches against interstate teams.
After winning its first Grand Final in 1963 winter, South competed in every winter GF until 1969, winning 5, plus 3 summer GF.
Lost in 1964 after being Minor Premiers but having its 2 Olympians absent for the final as it was played during the 64 Olympics.
