Players from both the hat-trick and double Shield wins came together with the current Western Warriors squad to hear from the likes of Mike Veletta, Graeme Wood and Adam Gilchrist.

Former opening batter Geoff Marsh said the comradery between the players helped push WA to a hattrick of Shield titles in the late 80's.

"There were some very competitive people in that side," He said.

"When we were in the dressing room we were all playing for the same thing, that was for the WACA and the guys sitting next to you."

The Western Warriors then went back to back in the late 90's in another brilliant era in WA cricket.

Former quick Jo Angel said there were plenty of characters in the team, some of whom went on to be greats of Australian cricket.

"We were well coached by Wayne Clark, he knew how to harness those different characters," He said.

"I guess that's the art of man management, knowing how to get the best out of individual players."
