Just found out Swans champion full back of the 50s anc 60s Joe Lawson has passed away.
Joe made his debut with Swans in 1955 and went on to play 235 games, including the flags from 1961-63. He also played for WA.
Rest In Peace Joe. Not many of the 61-63 premiership players left.

One of the great fullbacks, was still playing mid 60's I think, always had good battles with a young fella by the name of Robertson from Subi.

Condolences to his family. I read a lot about him but never saw him play. Sounded like he was a tough but fair player

Anyone who knows anything about the history of Swans.Knows this name and has an idea of his achievements..
Would of been amazing to have been around in 1961.The build-up to the Grand Final and the amazing shock victory. With a hat-trick .And 4 Gf appearances in 5 years.
Joe was a big part of all those historical events..RIP..

Sad to hear of Joe’s passing. He was a workmate of mine during late 70s and early 80s.
Condolences to his family.
A great player for Swans over a long career.
