Mark Duffield: Justin Longmuir and Luke Beveridge share the ability to create belief and unity

If you are looking for common traits that make good AFL coaches it’s best you don’t look at Justin Longmuir and Luke Beveridge side by side.

Common physical traits? They have about as many as Danny De Vito and Arnold Schwarzenegger shared in the movie Twins.

Career traits? Neither played in a premiership. Longmuir played four finals and got as far as the 2006 preliminary final with Fremantle.

Beveridge played in five, elimination and semifinals at Melbourne in 1989 and 1991 and a qualifying final at the Western Bulldogs (then Footscray) in 1994. He eked out a 118-game career across three clubs, Melbourne, the Bulldogs and St Kilda over 11 years, often on one-year deals, before playing his last game with the Saints at the age of 29 in 1999. He kicked three goals that night against West Coast at the WACA as the Eagles plunged to an unexpected seven-goal loss.
