Thomas Garfield "Tony" Anderson was a pacy half-back flanker who played 14 games in his first season and was selected for Victoria the next year, when he played as a half-back flank for the premiership side despite injuring his knee in the round 17 win over Hawthorn. He was troubled by the injury through the 1964 finals series, and the injury persisted into the 1965 pre-season. The mystery complaint made an equally mysterious recovery and he played in Round 1.

Anderson had played ten of eleven games for the year in 1965 when he fell from a horse during the club picnic to Marysville, developed a serious case of tetanus and missed the rest of the season.

He never played a full season again, with a knee injury restricting him to just five games in 1966 and thirty over his last three years. In the 1969 pre-season Anderson flagged that he was thinking about retiring, and after being married in the pre-season he played the first three games of the year before retiring.

After his career ended Anderson pursued a career in architecture and property development.
