LEAGUE FOOTBALLERS OF 1950 - -WING HALF - FORWARDS By PERCY TAYLOR

Argus 8-Jul-1950 p12 The Argus Week-End Magazine

BOB DAVIS, of Geelong, is one of the best and fastest wing half-forwards in the game. He came from Golden Point (Ballarat League), and walked straight into the side. While in Ballarat he was regarded as the best footballer in the bush, and most League clubs sought his services. Since his first senior game in 1948, Bob has not missed a game, except when he was playing for Victoria. Last year he was awarded the trophy for the best player in the State side. Pace off the mark, ball disposal, and good marking are his chief attributes. He has more weight than the ordinary player of his type, and can be used as a rover in an emergency.

Bob is a natural athlete, who plays most games in the summer, with basketball one of his favourites. He is a clerk at the motor works, and is single.
