Russian Invasion

20 May 2015

The player devlopment program which drives our "Development Escalator" ,continues to work at the Snakepit on monday nites.

With the big russian Alex Ischenko on deck doing ruck coaching with our very talented emerging ruck group. 
Alex is a man mountain playing at 202cm and 120kg . He played 142 games in the afl with west coast,brisbane and the kangaroos where he teamed up with Anthony Rock. 
Alex is currently the ruck coach at the afl Kangaroos and you would have to say he has done an outstanding job helping turn Todd Goldstein into one of the leading ruckmen in the country, while at the sametime also developing the younger ruckmen at the roos. 
Its great to have such a skilled coach like Alex as part of our football program and the development escalator. The club continues to work hard providing the best possible environment for our players to maximise their potential. 
So we welcome big Alex to the club and thank him for his expert involvement, in a series of these monday night ruck sessions.
