Bert Mills was a stand-out performer in generally poor Hawthorn sides between 1930 and 1942, during which time he played 196 VFL games and kicked 60 goals. Hard working and tough, he played the game hard but fairly. Equally capable of playing in the ruck or holding down a key position, usually centre half back, he was a triple club best and fairest winner and captained the Mayblooms for a total of five and a bit years.
