1963 pre-season rover who was also sought by Carlton and Richmond.

He originally signed with Carlton, but was living in Melbourne's zone so trained with them as well. He received a series of anonymous phone calls to his work and home from a caller who said "you had better play with Carlton this year or you will be in serious trouble". Then Richmond claimed he'd lived in a part of Toorak zoned to them for five months before shifting into Melbourne's part of the suburb.

After training with Melbourne and Carlton, the Demons dropped him from their main training group, pending a decision by the VFL on who had the rights to sign him. He never played senior VFL football for any side.
