An absolute beast of a man, the ultimate centre forward. He'd put his head where you wouldn't put a hurley then back farming strong Monday morning. I remember him hurting his hamstring in a game and was walking off the field (pre 4th official times) and the ball broke out to him, hi picked it up and drove it over the bar, and continued walking off the pitch. Legend.
