There was no doubting Tim Powell’s talent, and he proved himself adaptable as well, playing his early football as a high impact forward and later metamorphosing into an accomplished half back flanker. His single-minded attack on the ball and ability to run the ball constructively out of defence were noteworthy features of his play. After 64 games and 40 goals for Richmond he crossed to Carlton, where his 11 game 10 goals stint in 1993-4 included an appearance in the Blues’ 1993 grand final loss to Essendon. He also won the 1994 Gardiner Medal for reserve grade best and fairest. After being de-listed by Carlton he headed to South Adelaide, where he played from 1995 to 1997.

Originally from Berrigan, Powell helped the New South Wales state of origin side to a win over Victoria in 1990, and he also played in a loss to Queensland two years later.
