Biography

A typically cheeky Collingwood rover, Shaw was recruited from VFA club Preston after winning the J.J. Liston Trophy in 1973.

He soon won himself a reputation as one of the best rovers in the competition and was Collingwood captain in 1979-80, leading the club to its first Night Series premiership in 1979.

He won the Magpies’ best and fairest in 1978 and represented Victoria in 1979.

Shaw left Collingwood in 1981 and returned to Preston.

He later coached successfully with a number of suburban clubs and served as an assistant coach to his brother, Tony, in 1997.

Ray’s two sons, Rhyce and Heath, went on to carve out successful careers in the Black and White during the early 2000s. Both sons were able to finish their father’s work, each becoming premiership players in the space of three years. Heath was one of Collingwood’s best in the 2010 premiership while Rhyce, now with the Swans, was a member of their 2012 triumph.
