A Sandgate, Windsor-Zillmere and Aspley junior who forged a magnificent QAFL career with Mayne. A spectacular, high-marking full forward after making his debut in defence, he was the QAFL’s No.2 goal-kicker in his first season in 1977 with 85 goals, behind only Owen Backwell, and went on to win Hughson Medals in 1979-81-82. He was a premiership team member in ’82 and Mayne B&F winner in ’83. Signed by South Melbourne in 1978, he didn’t move to Melbourne until 1984 when he joined Collingwood.
Played 12 AFL games with the Magpies in 1984, for 32 goals including seven goals in his third AFL outing against Sydney. Followed sacked Collingwood coach John Cahill to West Adelaide in ’85 and enjoyed a stellar time with the ‘Bloods’, playing 62 games. Returned home to finish his 142-game QAFL career at Mayne.
Also played 10 times for Queensland.
