Originally from Rochester, Adrian Dullard was a tall and pacy forward or ruckman who played 116 games and kicked 143 goals for Melbourne between 1940 and 1949. He was one of the best players afield when Melbourne downed Essendon in the 1941 Grand Final, and also played in the 1948 premiership team (again against Essendon). After leaving Melbourne, Dullard spent the 1950 and 1951 seasons as captain-coach of VFA club Williamstown. His son, Anthony Dullard, later also played for both the Demons and the Seagulls.
