Fitzroy’s Chinkapook recruit Arthur O’Bryan was a consistent performer for the club in 46 VFL games from 1942 to 1946 in which he registered 29 goals. Sufficiently versatile to hold down a number of different positions, he lined up on a half back flank in the Roys’ 1944 grand final defeat of Richmond.
