1 Playing statistics correct to the end of 1967.
Teasdale was noted for his tough, uncompromising play and in 1964 saw this almost cost him his life – as his head clashed with that of North teammate Ken Dean leaving him in a serious condition in St. Vincent's Hospital. Midway through that same year, Teasdale came back to play for North, taking over the captaincy in the absence of injured skipper Allen Aylett.
The 1965 season saw Teasdale don a headguard (helmet) due to medical advice and this produced his best season yet – tying for the Brownlow Medal with Ian Stewart. Although he originally lost on countback, he was later awarded a retrospective medal.
