Michael Moncrieff was a tall, rangy full forward who had the unenviable task of following in Peter Hudson's footsteps at Hawthorn. He did this to commendable effect, topping the Hawks' goal kicking list five times, and amassing 629 goals in 224 VFL games between 1971 and 1983. His best season was 1976 when he booted 94 goals. A Hawthorn premiership player in 1976 and 1978, Moncrieff was a Victorian representative on three occasions. He crossed to St Kilda in 1984 but before he had played a senior game he injured a knee and was forced to retire.
