Noel Jarvis was a dashingly creative wingman who gave Fitzroy great service in 159 VFL games between 1944 and 1952. In his debut season he was on a wing, opposed to Leo Merrett, when the Roys overcame Richmond in the Grand Final to secure their last ever premiership. He boasted excellent reflexes, and if an opponent fumbled the ball he was generally onto it in a flash. Highly regarded by team mates and opponents alike, Jarvis represented the VFL at the 1947 Hobart carnival and again during his final league season.
