DES NISBET has been one of the most regular and consistent players in the St. Kilda side since he came from Rochester and had his first senior game in 1946. He must have wondered when he would have his chance, because he was 19th man in three games without taking the field. Two games later he was chosen, and only injury has kept him out of the side since. When football ended last season his tally was 62 games.

Although not tall, Des is nicely built, and his game at half-back is based on dash, judgment, and determination. He is married, with one child, and is a refrigeration engineer.
