A 208-game centre half back at Wilston-Grange through the 1960s. He was a product of Yeronga State School who played at Mayne in his formative years (1955-58) before transferring to Wilston-Grange in 1959. Strong overhead he was a permanent fixture in the State side representing Queensland 17 times from 1960-68. Won the 1968 Grogan Medal and many media awards through the ‘60s, and was a four-time B&F winner. Clearly among the best half dozen players of his era.
