LEAGUE FOOTBALLERS OF 1950-CENTRE HALF-BACKS – Percy Taylor

Argus 13-May-1950 P7

DENIS CORDNER, who played for most of last season at centre half-back, has been one of Melbourne's most distinguished players since he played his first game m 1943. This, strangely enough, was his only League game until he came back for the grand final against Essen- don in 1948, and the replay grand final, won by Melbourne. In between he had returned to University Blacks, where he was a real power.

Denis, 6ft. 4in. and 14st., is a superb mark and a fair rather than a good kick, but he has other attri- butes. His pace, dash, judgment, and anticipation, together with a great "heart," make him a grand team man. Denis is now a Bachelor of Science, specialising in metallurgy, and is still at the University, where he hopes to become a Master of Science this year. He is married and is living m Hawthorn.

During the summer Denis played cricket with University first eleven, being an opening bowler and a plucky hat It is not surprising to find that he has a full blue for cricket, an- other for football, and a half blue for athletics at which high jumping is his long suit.
