Quite tall at 188cm, but thinly built (72kg), Richmond's Bob Dummett's chief asset was his unwavering goal sense. In a spasmodic league career he played a total of 77 VFL games for the Tigers between 1954 and 1961, booting a total of 200 goals, which included club list-topping tallies of 32 in 1956, 41 the following year, and 45 in 1959.
