From: North Launceston
Centreman who joined Melbourne in the 1948 pre-season and was showing promise when a serious knee injury put him out.
He later returned to Tasmania and joined home town team Campbell Town in 1950, where he remained for two years before returning to North Launceston as captain/coach.
Named vice-captain of the Tasmanian team of the century, and named to the Tasmanian Hall of Fame.
Played in the 1948 premiership in Tasmania, so knee injury didn't keep him out for full season.
