He famously kicked a goal after the siren against the Brisbane Lions in round eight of the 1997 season to steer the Dockers to a thrilling five-point win at Subiaco Oval.

Leach was diagnosed with testicular cancer in 2016.

He was reportedly taken into palliative care this week and died on Monday afternoon.

Leach is survived by wife Shannan and three children.
