Premiership Player - 1964
A reserve in the 1964 Grand Final, half-back flanker McLean didn't get a run and after appearing in every game of 1965 either on-field or as a reserve was made captain of the reserves for 1966 and told he would not be considered for senior selection.
Convinced to reunite with Ron Barassi at Carlton and extend his league career, McLean won another premiership with the Blues in 1968 before ending his career. After his retirement at 27 years old he served on the Carlton committee and as chairman of selectors.
He later returned to Old Melburnians as coach.
