Biography

When talent scouts travelled to Bendigo to check on Tully, they walked away muttering that he was too small.

But Collingwood didn’t think so and they recruited the youngster from South Bendigo.

Tully was not a particularly strong overhead mark, but was a good ground player and a prodigious, thumping kick, unleashing a famous drop-kick from the centre of the MCG for a goal against Richmond.

Tully was in the centre in the losing Grand Final team of 1966 and represented Victoria the following year.

Barry Price edged him out of the centre, but he forced his way back into the team as a back-pocket in the 1970 Grand Final.

After that he transferred to WAFL club Claremont.
