Craig Potter

Craig_PotterAn outstanding junior from Western Districts who won All-Australian selection and the Queensland U17 B&F in 1982 who might have been one of the State’s ‘greats’ but for chronic injury woes. An outstanding centre square exponent, he played 55 AFL games with the Sydney Swans in 1984 and from 1987-90, and the Brisbane Bears from 1991-92.

He missed at least as many games again through injury before a bad knee brought a premature end to his career. His time at the Swans coincided with midfield aces Gerard Healy and Greg Williams feeding the high-flying Warwick Capper at full forward, and he was very much an unsung hero of this successful period.
