Shane Morwood made his VFL debut with South Melbourne in 1981 but when the club relocated to Sydney at the end of the 1982 season he refused to move and was cleared to Collingwood. Over time he developed into a fine, aggressive, rebounding defender who could run all day and boasted excellent all round skills. He represented Victoria in 1988, 1989 and 1990, and was a key member of the Magpies' 1990 premiership team. He played a total of 195 league games for Collingwood to add to the 17 he had managed with the Swans. Brothers Paul and Tony also played V/AFL football.
