Originally from North Ballarat, Jeff Dunne was the archetypal hard running, hyper-resilient back pocket specialist who, while at his peak during the late 1970s and early '80s, was among the very best in the business. During those peak seasons he was chosen to represent Victoria, and was a dual winner of St Kilda's best and fairest award. After 101 VFL games for the Saints between 1977 and 1983 Dunne transferred to Richmond but managed just one game in 1984 before retiring.
