Welcome to the Sean Rusling 2007 thread



President: Mich@el
Vice-President: uey

Info bellow taken from an article written by Will Brodie on Sat 20 November, 2004 and includes comments from Collingwood football operations manager Mark Kleiman:

Second round pick (23), Sean Rusling, (189cm, 84 kilos), was something of a ‘smokey’, having not figured highly in pre-draft predictions, but Mark says ‘all the clubs were well and truly aware’ of his talents.

However, it seems the Magpies were more aware than most. Study commitments at Westminster College curtailed Sean’s tenure at the AIS and restricted him to just one reserves game at SANFL level, (which was necessary for him to qualify for the draft), but the Magpies ‘tracked’ him all of the year.

‘He booted 12 goals in one school game, so he knows how to find the ball.’ Mark says. ‘We tested him at the Lexus Centre…we did our homework.’

The AFL describes him as ‘quick and very athletic.’

Sean is 6 foot 3 in the old measurements, but he runs 400 metres in 50.1 seconds and 100 metres in 10.8 seconds. (Geelong's Kane Tenace, touted as the fastest player in the AFL, manages 10.7 seconds for 100 metres.)

Again, it is anticipated that Sean can play anywhere from half-back to half-forward and eventually on the ball.

Collingwood player development manager Derk Hine says:
‘He was out there for everyone to see, but we did a lot of work behind the scenes. Neil Balme and I went over to see him. The uneducated might think that he represents a punt, but this has been considered very carefully – we have gone into it with our eyes open.

We've done all the tests…we've done three interviews, Mick has interviewed him. We know everything there is to know about Sean. He would have been a punt for other clubs who didn’t know as much about him.’

Is still four weeks away. You would think it would take 3-4 weeks so you wouldn't think he would be seen until round 17

Here's a link to Rusling sporting the clash guernsey. It's a shame he's reduced to a model and not able to wear it during a match this season!

Commentators always seem to compare him to Phil Carmen.

Just comments about how they move the same and how Ruz reminds them of Fabulous Phil. And they even wear the same number!! Razz (Although Carmen changed his a few times).

Those young Tuck's better watch out Shocked
