Biography

A tall hard-toiling ruckman and defender from St Pat’s, Sale, who was a fine mark which made up for a lack of pace.

He missed the 1966 season with injury, but came back strongly in 1967 and was selected in the Victorian side for the 1968 carnival.

He was a farmer and made headlines when he arrived at training in the family Rolls-Royce.

In 1978 he was tragically killed in a tractor accident.
