From: Hutchins Old Boys, Tasmania
6'4" ruckman and former All-Australian amateur who was signed to bolster the Demon ruck division and help out Peter Keenan.
Despite arriving at the club with a knee injury Clennett played 17 games in his rookie season and won praise for his early performances. He was described as a future star during his rookie year but had a delayed start to 1973 after dislocating his shoulder water skiing on the Murray River.
In 1975 Clennett returned to Tasmania to study but Melbourne demanded a $10,000 transfer fee from Sandy Bay. The Tasmanians offered to return $8,000 of the total if Clennett came back to Victoria in 1976.
