Biography

A famous high-marking follower and half-back whose kicking was sometimes erratic, achieving as much height as distance. Late in his career the kicking improved considerably.

Monohan had a big leap and huge hands which made him unbeatable when he was in the right position.

He was a stalwart for the Magpies and his forcing dashes from defence started many attacks.

Collingwood caused a sensation when it left Monohan out of the 1901 grand final side. Earlier in the season he had quelled the great Thurgood, and in his absence Thurgood dominated and Collingwood lost.

Monohan responded with great displays in the 1902 and 1903 premiership years even though injury forced him out of the 1902 grand final win.

In addition to his 170 VFL games Monohan also played 64 with the club in the VFA where in one memorable incident North barrackers bore coffins with his and Dick Condon’s names before a match.

He represented Victoria seven times.
