Career Stats & Summary

Biography

The son of the 1940s Balmain State and premiership-winning forward of the same name, John Spencer reached similar heights with the Tigers. After starting his career in the centres he moved to lock but a broken cheekbone cost him selection with the 1967-68 Kangaroos. Spencer played for NSW in 1969 and was a member of the team that defeated Souths in the grand final. He captained the club during the mid-1970s before taking on a player-coach position with Waratah Mayfield in the Newcastle competition in 1976. Spencer was a lower grade coach at Balmain before moving to the Entrance where he coached the club to the Central Coast premiership in 1989.
