LEAGUE FOOTBALLERS OF 1950-FULL BACKS Percy Taylor

Argus 6-May-1950 P7

IF a vote had been taken last year JACK McCORKELL of North Melbourne, might well have been chosen as the best full back in the League over the season. He is just 6ft., but weighs 14st., and this combination makes him a formidable opponent. He has great judgment, is expert in the air, and a fine kick.

In club circles he is regarded as the ideal type, as he was born and bred in the district, and is thus a "dyed in the wool" Northerner. After the usual testing period in the seconds he played his first senior game in 1940. He is thus in his 11th year, and has had 107 games.

Pleasant and good-humoured, Jack is the type of club man liked by officials. He plays because he loves the game, and is a great trier, because that is his nature. He is married, with three children, and is a public servant.
