Launceston born Ray Biffin went to the mainland in 1968 and joined Melbourne after starting his career in the NTFA. He was known for his physical approach to the game and played most games at either full-forward or fullback. Biffin topped Melbourne's goalkicking in 1976 with 47 goals and when he left the club after the 1979 season he became coach of Dandenong.

In the 1967/68 Sheffield Shield season he played a first-class match for Tasmania, making 10 runs and taking two wickets. He is one of a small number of players who have taken a wicket with their first ball in first class cricket.
