Queenslander Craig Potter was a strong performer for his state in the Teal Cup and played originally for Western Districts. Recruited by Sydney, he made his VFL debut at the age of just 18 but struggled with injuries. He played three games in 1984 but none in 1985 and 1986.[1] The most games he put together was 14 in 1988 and in 1991 he was traded back home to Brisbane, in a deal which helped bring Warwick Capper back to Sydney.[2]

Potter, a utility, spent just two seasons at Brisbane and finished his career in the SANFL with Central District. He won their 'Best and Fairest' award in 1993.
