Number: 4 1951-1955
Grand Final team - 1954
The strong ruckman/defender was recruited from Echuca where he had been training after playing at Kyabram the year before. Melbourne initially signed him before the 1949 season, but couldn't convince him to go to the city and play for two years.
He featured in the losing 1954 Grand Final side, but played just one more year before leaving the club.
Most sources say he was from Echuca, but he had only been training there for two weeks after playing for Kyabram the previous season.
