Recruited from Wandella, Mark Bos made his senior debut with Geelong against Footscray in round six 1979, and over the ensuing eleven seasons he went on to play a total of 195 VFL games. Tough, hard-hitting, and a thumping kick with either foot, he was one of the most reliable half back flankers of his day, although he could also perform serviceably in other positions if required. A smooth ball handler who played the game in a straight ahead, uncomplicated manner, Bos improved the longer his career went on, and won club best and fairest awards in 1987 and 1988. His last game was the 1989 Grand Final in which Geelong went down to Hawthorn by six points. Mark Bos represented Victoria in 1980, 1984, 1985 and 1988.
