Biography

An enigmatic ruckman who was a solid, clean mark. A dentist by profession he was recruited from Sandringham and in 1945 he represented the state against South Australia. From mid 1941 until late 1943 he did not play as he was serving in the navy. In a 1947 game with Footscray he was involved in a bizarre incident when, heavily concussed, he marked a ball on St Kildas goal-line instead of letting it through. The match ended in a draw.

In 1948 his gentlemanly tactics riled the St Kilda committee. First he helped Don Cordner to his feet and then he clapped one of Bill Morris’ marks. McIntyre said that when he was subsequently relegated to 19th man it was part of a pin-pricking campaign that had gone on all year and he resigned before the match. He said that after he had applauded Morris, the St Kilda coach Fred Froude had bawled him out and said it was not in the best interests of the side.


He went to Collingwood but at his first training session was met with a hostile reception from a group of barrackers who jeered every time he touched the ball. Collingwood officials said that they did not know the group and that they were not connected with the club. Coach Jock McHale said that nothing like that had ever happened there before and reassured McIntyre he was welcome. As a cricketer McIntyre played two first class games for Victoria against Tasmania in 1946-47 as a fast bowler and took 11 wickets. In effect it was the next best Victorian eleven as the main side had just played a Shield match.
