Pool was a rover, and by playing 200 games of VFL football he became the first ever West Australian born player to reach the milestone.
Despite his ability, playing for Victoria seven times, Hawthorn were a very poor team during his career.
Pool is (as of 2014) one of only five players in the AFL/VFL to play 200 games or more without playing a final (the others are Steve Smith and Gary Hardeman of Melbourne and Geoff Cunningham and Trevor Barker of St. Kilda).
