Fitzroy's Colin Benham was a solid, hard-working ruckman who provided a useful marking option when resting in the forward lines. He boasted tremendous stamina, and teamed well with champion rover Haydn Bunton senior. Recruited from Hamilton, Benton played 81 VFL games and kicked 70 goals for the Roys between 1930 and 1936.
