Bob Pratt was inducted into the Swans Hall of Fame immediately as a Bloods Legend in 2009.
Leading Goalkicker Medal 1934, 1935
Swans Team of the Century
Considered one of the greatest full forwards of all time, Bob Pratt Senior played for South Melbourne from 1930 to 1939, and made a brief return in 1946, although an injury in his only game for the season unfortunately ended his career. Captivating the crowd with his spectacular high marking, he played 158 games for the Club, and kicked 681 goals, a record which still stands. He was a member of the 1933 Premiership team, and there is a widely held view that South could have been premiers again in 1935 had he not been hit by a truck after stepping off a tram on the eve of the grand final. Bob Pratt is one of only two men in the history of the game to have kicked 150 goals in a season (1934), was the Club’s leading goalkicker six times – in consecutive years from 1932 to 1936 and again in 1939 – and won the competition’s Leading Goalkicker medal in both 1934 and 1935. He was named in a forward pocket in the Swans Team of the Century, and is an Australian Football Hall of Fame Legend.
