Biography

Souths five-eighth/halfback was a Pioneer Kangaroo tourist in 1908-09, playing in 23 matches including two Tests against England. Butler, who was a product of Alexandria RU Club, was later a member of the Souths team that won the 1909 premiership on forfeit. The following year he played for Souths in the 1910 final against Newtown, which finished in a 4-all draw. Described as ‘a superb handler, a tactician and a grim tackler’ Butler passed away in 1957, aged 74.
