A supremely accomplished rover/wingman who, along with Roy Cazaly, tore the heart out of the opposition. His quiet and easy-going nature led to Cazaly nicknaming him "napper" - as though he had gone to sleep on the field. Playing as a wingman early in his career, he brought South Melbourne their second premiership in the 1918 Grand Final. With South trailing by a point, Tandy made an inspired run down the wing to deliver the ball into the forward lines where Laird kicked the winning goal.
In 1996 Tandy was inducted into the Australian Football Hall of Fame.
