Biography

Pioneer Wests fullback, originally from Ashfield, transferred to Queensland in 1909 and played for Toombul, one of the four foundation clubs in Brisbane's domestic competition (the others being North Brisbane, Valley and South Brisbane). Duffin was a centre in the Queensland v NZ match before making his way into Australia's Second Test team in Brisbane as a winger. Australia won the match 10-5 but Duffin did not appear in another Test. In 1913 he captained Queensland against NZ before quietly slipping into obscurity.
