Ruckman and back pocket Hanna was a fringe player in the powerful Melbourne sides of the late 1940s. After returning from RAAF duty during the Second World War he first appeared in Reserves games in 1946 and made his debut the next season.
Despite playing 14 games in 1948 he missed out on the finals and Melbourne's premiership victory due to a broken collarbone after being shirt-fronted by Richmond's Jack Dyer. The hit left him carried off the ground under a blanket, leaving the Tigers' captain convinced he'd killed Hanna.
Some sources say he was from Warragul.
