Comment

He kicked a VFA-record 188 goals in the 1945 season

TODD ts one of the romantic figures of football. A splendid clubman and
the type that makes football look easy . Gives Williamstown serviceable
play blended with brilliance. Although accurate and able to get goals from almost anywhere is unselfish in playing to companions. Uncanny in leading out and finding Vallence. Can practically swing a game by his own efforts. Always looking for the ball. plays the full width of the field, but yet always seems In position. Clever at leading opposition Into packs and leaving teem while he darts out for the ball
Storting Globe Sep 19406
