Somewhat unusually, Geelong's Peter Stephens' two preferred positions were centre half back and rover. Moreover, he excelled in both. Combining solidity with tremendous dash, he was a great team player whose shepherding was especially effective. From 1902 to 1908 he played a total of 102 VFL games and kicked 22 goals.
