Code award to Sanders
Lcylond Sanders has been selected as the best and fairest Australian Rules nlavcr of 1954.
Sanders, CoorparooYer onga captain, has represen ted Queensland in Rules since 1946 and in Sheffield Shield cricket since 1950. He was one of Queens land's best players against the Australian Amateurs in wet conditions in Melbourne this year, and was best on the Southern tour last .year. Inspires team Sanders plays good foot ball in any position under all conditions, but shines as a backman. His indomitable spirit and subtle intensity of leader ship is an inspiration to his team. Although he bumps vigor ously when necessary, he has never been guilty of rouph play. He is scrupulously fair. His strongest critics say he is a sportsman — a true sportsman. Sanders, a West End elec trical contractor, is 5 feet 0 inches, 13 stone, and 26 years. Possibly his best game this year was against NSW in Brisbane, when he replaced a Queensland backman who was injured.
