Jim Harrop’s versatility


Saturday, October 22 – 1910
Many enthusiasts believe that Harrop would never make a wing half-back, but his play on Saturday must have convinced those doubters that his cleverness may yet enable him to accustom himself to the position.

Although inclined to get into the centre, he was always in his position when required. He fed Harold Uren with nice low passes, and it was quite evident that the pair understood each other’s methods. Those back-heel touches were greatly relished, and I feel certain that he raven-haired half-back will prove his versatility.

Harold Uren, Ronald Orr and Jim Harrop ought to prove a powerful attacking force.
