Biography

Fine attacking five-eighth started his career with Wests before moving to Souths in 1968. Pittard, known as 'The Sneak' amongst team-mates, displaced Test pivot Jimmy Lisle in Souths' first grade team. Pittard was a darting, incisive attacking player who, with partner Bob Grant, formed the best halfback combination in the game at that time. Pittard won premierships with the club in 1968 and 1970-71 and became the first player to win two Rothmans Medals (1969 & 1971) – a measure of his standing in the great Souths teams of that era. He played for NSW in 1969 and also toured NZ with the Australian side that year. Pittard was selected in the 1970 World Cup squad but Bob Fulton played five-eighth in the final and Pittard did not represent Australia again. He later saw out his career with P’matta following a mass exodus from the financially savaged Souths club and captained the Eels to win the 1975 pre-season competition.
