After an aborted, four-game stint at South Melbourne in 1899, Jack Incoll resurfaced at Collingwood three years later and went on to provide handy service in 61 VFL games over five seasons. Mainly used either on the forward line or in the ruck, he could also do a job in a key defensive role when required. A half forward in the Magpies' 1902 premiership team, Incoll replaced Fred Hailwood, who had gone to Western Australia, as the team's main ruckman the following year, and it was in that position that he made a significant contribution to the club's second consecutive flag.

After leaving Collingwood, Incoll moved to New South Wales and joined Newtown. In 1911 he represented his adopted state at the Adelaide carnival. He later played for North Broken Hill and West Torrens and from Adelaide at age 35 he enlisted in the 14/10 Infantry.
