Leon, a 6'2" ruckman, used to wear white socks over his footy socks, very fashionable at the time. Hallett Shueard continued the tradition before it, thankfully, died out.

Leon's stats in the 1961 GF against Norwood were 4 kicks and 2 handballs. We had 4 ruckmen that day (such was the influence of Bill Wedding) - DeBrough, Barker, Kerley and O'Driscoll - how times have changed! He started on the bench in the 1962 GF against Port. No idea of his number though. If it was no 16 then he must have taken it over from 'Boof' A'Court.
