    Vale Peter Hogan

    Peter Hogan died on Saturday.

    He had come to the club in 1963 from Portland, with huge raps- he was what the Tigers were after, a small man, to rove the packs with Frank Dimattina, two years before Kevin Bartlett would burst on the scene.

    And rove he did- he manage to secure 40 games between 1963- 1966, kicking 57 goals, including 4 against Carlton in 1963 and Hawthorn in 1965.

    At the end of 1966- he went to Sandringham where he both played and coach.
    He would go on to coach the Sydney Swans Reserves , Parkdale, and then- return to the club where he started, Richmond, some 20 years later, to coach the Reserves in 1985.

    He died on the weekend at the age of 62.
