Blisteringly fast, and a smooth ball handler, Bryan Ploenges was a fine if underrated player for South Adelaide in 142 SANFL games between 1957 and 1968.
After struggling to secure a regular senior place early in his career, he really blossomed after being tried on a wing, where his tremendous pace, excellent judgement, and neat disposal skills all came to the fore. He was one of South Adelaide’s best players in the 1964 Grand Final defeat of Port Adelaide, and he remained a key player for the club as it continued at the forefront of the game in South Australia for the ensuing couple of seasons. Ploenges played interstate football for South Australia twice.
