LEAGUE FOOTBALLERS OF 1950 FORWARD POCKET By PERCY TAYLOR

Argus 5 August 1950 p. 8 The Argus Week-End Magazine

GEORGE COATES plays in a forward pocket when he is not relieving Alan Ruthven at roving. George, who had his first senior game in 1947, and had played in 51 games up to the end of last season, shows lots of finesse when in action. He has a beautiful turn either way, and on his day he is brilliant. (He has played for Victoria.) His job is as collector and salesman for a Bourke st. firm.
George is single and plays cricket and golf for relaxation.
