Scott Cummings was a larger-than-life full forward who came to the West Coast as a successor to Peter Sumich at full forward, after stints at Essendon and Port Adelaide.

Essendon and Port Adelaide careerEdit

Originally from Swan Districts, Cummings kicked 83 goals in 40 games with Essendon and won their goalscoring in 1994, before crossing to Port Adelaide for the Power's inaugural season. He kicked 102 goals in 37 games, including 70 in 1997 which saw him finish third in the Coleman Medal race. At the end of 1998 Port Adelaide traded Cummings to West Coast for midfielder Jarrad Schofield.

West Coast careerEdit

Cummings was an instant success in the blue and gold, kicking 4 goals on debut against the Dockers and following it up with regular big bags throughout the 1999 season en route to winning West Coast’s only Coleman Medal to that point. Controversially, despite his medal win Cummings was overlooked for All-Australian honours with the selectors preferring Essendon’s Matthew Lloyd.

Cummings picked up some bigger bags the following season, kicking a club-record 14 goals against Adelaide at the WACA and another 10 against Freo two weeks later. Unfortunately, the second half of his 2000 season was wrecked by injury and he played just 13 games for the season as West Coast missed the finals for the first time since 1989.

The burly forward struggled through 2001, playing just 9 games for 16 goals, and wound up being delisted during the end of season cleanout.

Collingwood careerEdit

Cummings was thrown a lifeline in the pre-season draft by former coach Mick Malthouse, now at Collingwood. He played just 5 games for the Pies, his fourth club, before retiring at the end of the 2002 season.

Post-AFL careerEdit

Cummings has worked extensively in the media, appearing at various stages on Fox Footy, OneHD and 3AW radio.
