Biography

Originally from Northcote, he was a splendid high mark whose force and power stamped him as a fine player.

A strong kick, he skippered Collingwood in part of 1908 and 1909 and was regarded as a good tactician.

Legend said that he once jobbed Tommy Baxter for not playing straight – a euphemism for being paid not to do his best.

Nash played in the Victorian 1908 carnival side and later went to Footscray VFA as captain-coach.

A police officer, the father of Laurie, a South Melbourne star and Australian Test cricketer.
