LEAGUE FOOTBALLERS OF 1950-WING MEN By PERCY TAYLOR

Argus 17-Jun-1950 P7

LEO FRANCIS was first heard of when he was playing in a Bendigo C.Y.M.S. team, and when North Melbourne and Hawthorn played an end-of-the-season game at Bendigo in 1944, he was invited to play with North in that game. There his form was so good that he was brought down in the next season, and has been a fairly regular wing man ever since, with 56 games.

Although he has been tried as a rover Leo. is better suited on the wing, where he has given good service. He has plenty of pace, is a good mark and kick, and his delivery of the ball is excellent. He and Keith McKenzie give great drive to the attackers.

Leo. is on the land with his family as Fosterville, near Bendigo, and re- turns home after every season to do his share of the farm work. He is single, and plays a good game of cricket in the summer.
