A formidable on field presence at 192 cm and 95 kg, Frank Stubbs gave solid service in the ruck to North Melbourne in 66 VFL games between 1937 and 1941 and in 1945-6. However, arguably his best football was played during a 70-game stint at Camberwell between 1947 and 1951. While with the Tricolours he won three consecutive best and fairest awards from 1948 to 1950 and was the club's first ever Liston Trophy winner in the last of those years.
Stubbs was an energetic, high leaping player who typically covered a lot of ground while rucking, and he also boasted plenty of pace for such a big man. His kicking was sound, and he rarely wasted the ball.
