Lightly built but tenacious and fleet-footed, North Melbourne's Les Mogg was a key member of the powerful combination which topped the VFL ladder in 1949, and reached a Grand Final the following year. Recruited from St Pat's Ballarat, he played most of his 75 senior games between 1949 and 1954, including the aforementioned Grand Final, on a wing, but was also a useful crumbing forward, booting a total of 41 league goals.
