KEN SIER played so well in attack for Fitzroy in the grand final of 1944 that Richmond officials had their eyes on him, and were delighted when he was cleared three years ago. In that 1944 game Ken was placed full forward against George Smeaton, against whom he played the baulking game. This enabled the rovers to kick the goals-as shrewdly planned by Fitzroy.

At Richmond Ken is not a forward but a full back, where he did a grand job last year. He has pace mid dash, and a full forward has no peace against him.

Up to 1947, when he played his last game before transferring, he had played 49 games and kicked 62 goals. At Richmond he has played 27 games in the two years. He is 6ft. lin. and 12st. 4lb.

As a runner Ken has had one good win in ten years, but has won many heats. Now he is becoming most interested in golf, playing with a few players of other clubs at weekends. He also plays in a fairly regular tournament conducted by his firm, but does not think he is a match for Von Nida just as present.

Ken is a costing clerk in a large concern. He is married, with two little girls, and he lives at Essendon, close to Dick Reynolds. "But I've no intention of seeking a clearance to Essendon" said Ken with a grin.
