LEAGUE FOOTBALLERS OF 1950 - THE MEN IN THE CENTRE By PERCY TAYLOR

Argus 3-Jun-1950 p6-7 Weekend Magazine

BRILLIANT in his first year, BOB MILLER, after an operation, is only just beginning to regain that form, and it looks as if he will be Fitzroy's permanent centre man

He was playing with East Brunswick in the League Sub-districts when he sought a residential clearance to Hawthorn. That was the first Fitzroy had heard of him. Not being prepared to clear a player without seeing him, they asked Bob to train with the club. He pleased the critics, and was persuaded to stay. He quickly settled clown to be one of the best players in his first year.

Bob's rugged type of play is of value in his position, although a little more finesse might be of even more value. His ball disposal cannot be faulted, and he marks well.

In business for himself as a painter and decorator, Bob probably found the climb up and down ladders has helped to strengthen his knee. He is married, with two children, and lives in Nicholson street, East Brunswick. He plays a little cricket in the summer time, but prefers to concentrate on football.
