Ted Pool was the first player to play 200 games for Hawthorn. He was an outstanding sportsman, excelling at cricket, tennis and swimming. Considered one of the greatest rovers to play the game; he displayed courageous daring, dash and skill, winning high praise from his opponents. He had uncanny ability to read the opposition ruckman’s taps enabling him to gain first possession of the ball and then drive the ball forward with well-directed stab kicks. Captain Bert Mills considered Pool to be the best player that he’d seen with the Mayblooms, a marvelous player who kept going year after year.
