LEAGUE FOOTBALLERS OF 1950 —HALF-BACK FLANKERS

Argus 1-Jul-1950 p12 The Argus Week-end Magazine

DES ROWE has settled down to being one of the best half-backs in the game, but Rich- mond had lots of trouble in getting him. He is a son of Percy Rowe, former Collingwood star, and played with Coburg when his father was coach there. He wanted to play with Collingwood, but he was tied to Richmond residentially. Soon after he carne to Richmond, Des tried again to go to Collingwood, but he was too good to release. Then he began to settle down, and is now one of the keenest Tigers in the jungle. Superb dash, good judgment, and long, driving kicks are chief factors in his success. When he first joined Richmond he had difficulty in mark- ing over his, head. Sheer persistence enabled him to overcome that fault, and he now marks well.

He plays cricket, table tennis, and swims, is engaged to be married, and. has a shop in Bridge rd., Richmond.
