BIOGRAPHY
Don was a rover and wingman. Recruited from Yallourn he spent just over a season with Richmond before returning to the country. His three senior games were in Rounds 9, 10 and 11 of 1945 against Collingwood, Fitzroy and Geelong. He was eventually forced into an early retirement through injury and now lives in Yallourn.
