Tony Dullard was the son of dual Melbourne premiership player of the 1940s Adrian Dullard. Like his father, he was a ruckman or key position player, but the fact that he was 7cm taller and 19kg heavier made him a very different sort of footballer, one reliant more on power and strength than pace and guile. He joined Melbourne from amateur side North Melbourne Old Boys and played a total of 108 VFL games between 1973 and 1981, kicking 49 goals. After departing the VFL scene, Dullard played briefly in the VFA with Williamstown just as his father had before him.
