Anch: your right -- he kicked quite a few goals too especially in a weak side. Never heard of Hynes. Did he also play for Claremont or another club?

He played for Claremont. Played forward and as a ruckman, though shorter than a lot of ruckman.A big strong fella.Could leap over buildings in a single bound.Well leap over packs any way.
Blethyn also wore glasses and played FF.

Anchor and Ark Royal, former Footscray ruckman Peter Hines is the fella in question.

Only a short-arse ruckman at 6'2" in the old language - these days he'd be a flanker at best.
Hines had four years at Claremont and was a teammate of Geoff Blethyn's in 1973-74.

Around the same time, there was a left-footed HFF (in the mould of George Young/Neil Randall) came over from Richmond to join the Pussies.

He was well regarded at Richmond, but from memory had some domestic issues (I may be wrong here), and felt it best to get out of Bleak City.

I remember him well, because in the good old days, you could get a job transfer in the Commonwealth Public Service (HMC) if you were well connected.

BC may also remember him.

Oborne seems to have been swapped for Kevin Worthington
