Tim Evans began as a strong marking centre half back who could also be used up forward when needed for Penguin and then Geelong. After leaving the VFL, Evans played with Port Adelaide in the SANFL. There he was transformed into a full forward and became an archetypal ‘goal machine’. He won the South Australian goalkicking award six times and became one of Port Adelaide’s greatest ever goalkickers.
