Queanbeyan Tiger takes charge of AFL Hall of Fame
At just the age of 19, Troy was best on ground in the Tigers 1991 First Grade premiership win before being drafted by the Sydney Swans. He was later traded to St Kilda as part of the package that saw Tony “Plugger” Lockett join the Swans.
After his AFL career Troy went on to be involved in television and radio, and presented the news on the Nine Network in Adelaide.
Troy’s popularity and renowned skills saw him pick up the gig as MC for the Hall of Fame dinner hosted at the Adelaide Oval.
We at the Tigers like to think it was a nice little warm-up gig for the main event coming up next week – our annual Long Luncheon – where Troy will be our MC and a guest speaker.
Troy commented that being on stage for the AFL Hall of Fame was a childhood dream, even though he wasn’t there to be inducted as a player. He was looking forward to getting back to Tigerland for the Long Luncheon.
The Long Luncheon will be held at Hotel Realm, Barton on Friday, 30 June starting at 1pm.
Tickets are $150 and are still available. Phone 0409 365 667 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org to book a seat at what will be a great afternoon.
