All Australian player following the 1972 Australian Football Championships representing Western Australia.

A solid half-back flanker who moved to centre-half-forward with Perth in 1972 and became the first player to win a Sandover Medal playing from that key position. After a lengthy clearance wrangle, he enjoyed a four-year stint (1974-77) in the Victorian Football League, with the now-defunct Fitzroy Football Club, where he converted to a ruck-rover role. On his return to Western Australia, he joined East Perth and playing in a similar position was in a premiership side in his first season, playing under former team-mate Barry Cable – and claiming the Simpson Medal for the grand final. He later returned to coach Perth from 1982-84 and then joined the West Coast Eagles, firstly in an assistant coach’s role and then as a full-time member of the football operations department, responsible for player welfare.
