Russell Robertson famously made an impact when his high-flying marking prowess was shown on The Footy Show. At that time he was a Tassie Mariners star and not long after he was rookie drafted from Burnie Dockers to Melbourne. Over the years Robertson’s off-field persona became well known through his interests in music and the media. On the field he became an important part of Melbourne’s forward set-up and he was the club’s leading goalkicker in three seasons.
