Who is the Lone Ruckman?
The lone Ruckman played over 300 games of senior football, all of which were in reserve grade. A big game player who thrived in September he was unlucky to be omitted in 7 of 8 grand finals. In the one decider he did play in, The Lone Ruckman played the thankless role of “decoy” ruckman which allowed more predictability for his midfield.
Now the man who it is said has done for country football what Ebola has done for African tourism turns his attention to the big boys in the AFL.
Each week The Lone Ruckman will hand out his home spun wisdoms with the monotony of Brian Taylor’s use of the phrase “hand candy” in his Blog about everything AFL.
