Biography

One of the greatest defenders of his era, Dibbs was a superb full-back whose judgement was uncanny.

He joined Collingwood from a local church team and made his League debut in a forward pocket. However, he was shifted to full-back at half-time and he spent the rest of his career there even though he was short for a key position.

Dibbs played in five Collingwood premiership sides – 1927, 1928, 1929, 1930 and 1935 – and represented Victoria in 1928 (he also represented the VFL against Bendigo in 1935).

He crossed to Geelong as captain-coach in 1936, but was there just one season.
