BIOGRAPHY
Ray was a strongly built centre-half-forward nicknamed “Big Joe”. Recruited from Greensborough he was also a member of the Reserves’ 1946 Premiership side. Although considered lazy on the training track, he was a strong mark and thumping left foot kick. He was consistently among the leading goalkickers and won the Goalkicking award in 1949, 1950 and 1955. His highest individual tally was 8 which he kicked against St.Kilda in 1948 and Carlton in 1955. He scored 5 goals of more 19 times; ran second in the Best and Fairest award; and was awarded Life Membership in 1955. He also represented Victoria three times. After leaving Richmond, he moved to Castlemaine as coach and went on to win the Bendigo League Goalkicking award in 1958. He now lives in Queensland. His father Joe Poulter played 83 games with Collingwood between 1923 and 1927 including the 1927 Premiership side. He then played 37 games with South Melbourne in 1928 and 1929. Ray is also the brother-in-law of former Richmond full-back Allan Cations.
