Cult hero to grace EKFL

Relton Roberts is set to make his East Kimberley Football League debut on Friday night.

The former Richmond cult hero, who once got in trouble for eating a hamburger before a VFL match, has been cleared to Waringarri ahead of their match against Kununurra.

Roberts has featured in several leagues in country Victoria and the Northern Territory since quitting the Tigers due to homesickness.

The 32-year-old, who made two AFL appearances for Richmond in 2010, most recently played for Wanderers in the NTFL.

However, the man they call the Barunga Bullet, Relton Roberts, struck back quickly for the Crows.

Roberts, who comes from the Northern Territory and played two games for the Richmond Tigers, said he decided to play because he was in the area and some of his mates had been involved in the Crows club.

He said he hadn’t played any football for a couple of months and this would be a one-off appearance for the Crows.

Roberts kicked four goals on the night including three off-deep kicks in the first quarter which helped the Crows get to a 5.2 (32) to 2.0 (12) start.

Ex-AFL player Andy Goodwin had his car knocked off as he paid for petrol at a servo in Thomastown early this morning. It’s been recovered minus a few things. The young crooks are VERY lucky big Andy didn’t catch up with them.....

Dan Jackson joins AFL Europe Commission

“In addition to his standout AFL career, Dan has a demonstrated history of supporting grassroots and international footy, having helped coach the French national team at the IC2011 and IC2014 and since retiring has worked with the Canadian national women’s team and numerous club teams in Canada, the USA, England and France.”

Jackson, who will balance his commission duties with his work with Foundation Performance and masters of performance psychology studies in Edinburgh, said that he looks forward to working with those on the ground around the continent to drive the growth of the game.

“I’m really excited to get on board with AFL Europe,” said the 2013 Jack Dyer Medalist.

“Having spent some time coaching teams in France, Canada, US and UK over the last few years I’ve seen first-hand the passion and energy foreign players bring to our game and I look forward to helping where I can.”
