Played his first game for us 10 years ago today apparently.

Not sure who cut this AFL package (clearly a Tiger fan) but it's a ripper & the absolute cream of Dusty. Well worth a watch.


Heck of a player. Hard to comprehend we may not see him play again this season..

Enjoy.
Not sure who is GOAT but very few would have a better 10 minute highlights reel. Especially considering most of those highlights are on the big stage and at critical times. Hopefully it will be a 20 minute reel by the end of his career. Long live the King!

After his first game Dusty said he thought he struggled with the fast pace of the seniors. That kind of honest reflection is another reason why he became a champion.

Some kids are like “yeah I thought I did alright, just lack a bit of fitness”

It’s hard to imagine how, but Dusty wasn’t born great. He worked for it.

Mine was 3rd quarter in the QF against Geelong in 2017 when he made AA Tom Stewart look like a bush reserves player. That passage of play still sends shivers down my spine. The roar when Prestia kicked the goal was other wordly.

In hindsight it was the moment that turned the match in our favour.

What a great 10 minute highlight package.
I'm very biased, but I don't think any other player could better it. Some might be able to match it (I doubt it) but there'd be no one who could better it.

Besides Ablett Snr, can't think of any other player who would have a better highlights package
