A back pocket and change follower in Geelong’s 1937 grand final victory over Collingwood, Bernie Hore was tough, rugged and powerful. He was also very versatile, playing in every position on the field with the exception of wing and rover during his 60 VFL game, two goal career from 1936 to 1940. In 1941 he crossed to Coburg in the VFA without a clearance. Coburg went top that year, but Hore missed the grand final through suspension.
