Pugnacious and feisty, but also superbly balanced and a wonderful kick, Jack Carmody was an important player for Collingwood in in 94 VFL games between 1933 and 1939, which included the winning Grand Finals of 1935-6. Carmody's aggressive style of play was ideally suited to finals football, and he starred on a wing in both of the premiership teams in which he played. After struggling to maintain his place in the team during the last couple of years of his time at Victoria Park, Carmody crossed to Hawthorn in 1940 where his career underwent something of a renaissance. Between 1940 and 1944 and in 1946 he added another 64 VFL games to his tally, and was captain of the side in 1942. As he slowed down he played a fair amount of football in the forward lines, with some success.
