Collingwood's Peter Lucas was a half back flanker of the highest order, whose ability to keep even the most dangerous opponents in check was perhaps the most noteworthy feature of his game. Pacy, strong overhead, and a fine kick, he did everything with a smooth consistency that effectively redoubled its impact. His 177 VFL games between 1949 and 1959 included the winning Grand Final of 1958 against Melbourne, injury having ruled him out of the previous premiership win against Geelong in 1953. Peter Lucas returned to Collingwood as an administrator after his playing days were over.
