On joining North Melbourne from Strathbogie John Law was used initially as a forward but his resolute, straight ahead style was much better suited to a half back flank, which was where he ended up spending the vast majority of his 12-season, 219 game VFL career. He captained the Kangaroos in 1988 and 1989, which proved to be his last two seasons in the game.
