Mervyn John Lees (born 1932) is an Australian former rugby league player of the 1950s. He was a premiership-winning centre with the St George Dragons and a state representative.

Career

Merv 'Smacker' Lees played five seasons at the St George Dragons between 1953-1958. He won a premiership with St George in 1956 under coach Norm Tipping, and also played in the 1953 grand final side that were runners up. Injuries curtailed his career, and he retired in 1959.

Merv Lees represented New South Wales on four occasions between 1954-1955.

A newspaper article in the St. George and Sutherland Shire Leader in 2012 regarding Merv Lees' 80th birthday suggested he was still in good health and still had many great memories of his playing career for the St George Dragons and N.S.W.
