Pacy, highly skilled, and extraordinarily consistent, Les Millis was a tremendously popular figure at Fitzroy where he played 126 VFL games between 1903 and 1909. At his peak during the 'Roys back to back flag-winning years of 1904 and '05, he was among the best players afield as a wingman in the 1904 Grand Final defeat of Carlton, and as a rover a year later against Collingwood. He won Fitzroy's best and fairest award in both 1905 and 1906.
