Originally from Manjimup, Paul Peos was recruited by East Perth after making a big impression as a member of Western Australia's Teal Cup team. He made his debut for the Royals in 1986, and at the end of the year, after being the only rookie in the league to play in all his team's matches for the season, was chosen in West Coast's inaugural VFL squad.
Between 1987 and 1992, Peos alternated between the Eagles and Royals, earning plaudits for his strong marking, coolness under duress, and exemplary conversion rate when playing in the forward lines. At the end of the 1992 season he was traded to Brisbane where he played 33 games in two seasons, kicking 40 goals. Returning to Western Australia in 1995 he again divided his time between West Coast in the national and East Perth in the local competition. When the Eagles released him at the end of the of the 1995 season he had played a total of 55 V/AFL games and booted 34 goals for the club.
In 1996, freed from his AFL commitments, Peos produced an excellent season of football in the WAFL, earning himself the Royals fairest and best award. He continued with East Perth for one further season before hanging up his boots with 121 senior games and 59 goals to his name. He represented Western Australia once.
