Premiere Screening

Paul Roos

Paul Roos

Paul Roos enjoyed a spectacularly successful 17-season career at the top level. He joined Fitzroy from Beverley Hills and made his VFL debut in 1982 as a wingman, but it was when moved to centre half back that he truly blossomed. Crossing to Sydney in 1995 he continued to play fine football in 87 games over his final four seasons, mainly at centre half back. A Victorian representative on fourteen occasions, Roos was a dual winner of the EJ Whitten Medal. He remained at Sydney as a member of the coaching staff when he retired as a player, and in 2002 he took over from Rodney Eade as the club's senior coach. He continued to coach the Swans until handing over the reins to John Longmire at the close of the 2010 season. Roos later became a television commentator, and his ability to analyze the game in that role was highly-respected.

Quote:

The International Cup gives guys overseas a chance to represent their country, come to Australia, see the game and play the game. I think is fantastic.

"I think the biggest thing at the moment, the AFL and the players association along with the football clubs are doing at the moment is really creating environments that are very welcoming to Aboriginal players. And we're seeing a lot of indigenous players that are getting drafted from anywhere in Australia which is fantastic and that's the way it should be."
