Statement to be attributed to AFL Players’ Association CEO Paul Marsh:
“On behalf of the AFL Players’ Association, I would like to express my sincere condolences to the Farmer family.
Graham ‘Polly’ Farmer is a Legend of the Australian Football Hall of Fame and he will be deeply missed by the AFL community.
‘Polly’ played an integral role in shaping the game and his style of play revolutionised the ruck position.
A proud Noongar man, his role in paving the way for the many great Indigenous players who followed also deserves recognition.”
