Graham Jenzen was a speedy and talented rover who saw comparatively little time on the ball as he had the misfortune to play for Perth during the heyday of one of the greatest small men in the history of the game, Barry Cable. Actually, ‘misfortune’ is not really the right word as Jenzen comprehensively turned the situation to his advantage, becoming one of the most damaging half forwards and forward pockets in the WANFL. Moreover, not many players get to play in three senior league premiership teams, as Jenzen did in 1966-7-8. Perth’s top goal kicker with 37 goals in 1965, 63 in 1966 and 68 in 1969, he played a total of 138 games and kicked 322 goals between 1965 and 1971 and in 1974. A clean ball handler who wore his heart on his sleeve, Graham Jenzen was perhaps a touch unfortunate never to gain interstate selection for Western Australia.
