Beloved Bomber Anthony McDonald-Tipungwuti has called time on his outstanding career, today announcing his retirement from AFL effective immediately.
In a career littered with highlights of his magic up forward, McDonald-Tipungwuti informed his teammates of his decision to bid farewell to the game after seven seasons in the red and black.
Recruited from the club’s VFL side, McDonald-Tipungwuti made his debut in 2016, becoming a mainstay at senior level to break the record for consecutive games played for Essendon in the AFL era with 126.
Throughout his 126-game career, McDonald-Tipungwuti kicked 153 goals and claimed the club’s Matthew Lloyd Leading Goalkicker award in 2020.
Wish clubs played in the indigenous jumpers all year round. Most of them look better than the normal strips they wear.
This is great football to watch from the blues. Could they be a challenger to the dees this year?
And it's actually a s**t game. The standard is utterly trash these days. It is literally like watching today's NBA. Non stop free kicks and everything done possible to keep the scoring ticking over. Just a sad decline and no wonder the numbers will never be back to what they were in the past.
Not a bad player that Curnow though (although half his tally tonight have been from free kicks).
