Congratulations to a great Eagles clubman in Rizz who notches up his 300th game this week at Hansen Reserve.
Steve started with the Club seven prime-ministers ago way back in 2001. As a junior he filled the role of a fast and highly skilled on-baller and forward who was always dangerous around goal. Now as a senior player he plies his trade across half back and is equally adept in a lock-down role or as a counter-attacking defender with exceptional skills. And he loves more than anything to sneak forward for the occasional goal and of course letting his opponent know all about it.
Rizz is a 150+ goal kicker and a four time Eagles premiership player with wins in the 2004 Under 16s, 2009 B Grade Reserves and the senior premierships of 20012 and 2019. In all four games he was a valuable contributor and throughout his career he has earnt the respect of his teammates and the entire club alike.
And in a little known fact Rizz also has the honour of being the creator of the now traditional “thank you sir” insertion into the post-win performance of the club song.
Congratulations Rizz on playing your 300th game in the green and white, a worthy member of the 300 club at the Eagles.
