Drafted onto the Bulldogs rookie list as a power forward, Redpath has worked diligently with the development coaches to increase his versatility at both ends of the ground. The big-bodied key position player continues to assert himself against the more mature opponents at VFL level and is shaping as a reliable full-back.  Selected with pick 62 in the 2011 Rookie Draft, Redpath adds depth to the Dogs’ tall stocks. Redpath was elevated onto the Bulldogs' senior list in round 15 of the 2014 Toyota AFL Premiership Season, and debuted against Geelong in round 16.

Season By Season

Season in short:

Rewarded with a round 16 debut against Geelong, Jack Redpath’s football journey is one of persistence. 

Overcoming two knee reconstructions before being rookie listed in 2011, Redpath played three senior games after being upgraded onto the senior list in the back-half of the season.

Redpath provided an imposing physical presence in the Dogs’ forward six, goaling in games against the Gold Coast and Essendon.

Redpath was Footscray’s leading goal-kicker in the VFL this season.

 

The stat that mattered:

Redpath kicked 36 goals in the VFL and finished fifth on the league’s tally.

 

What they said:

“He was tracking really well as a young player and overcame a couple of knee reconstructions.

“We have had him here for two or three years and he has been able to really develop in our VFL team, under some great coaching from Ash Hansen who has brought him along fantastically well.” – Bulldogs List Manager Jason McCartney ahead of Redpath’s debut in round 16.

Season in short:

A mixed season for Redpath saw the developing key tall play nine matches for VFL affiliate Williamstown, sharing his time between the senior and development sides. After showing glimpses of his bullocking best early, Redpath was restricted to the sidelines for six weeks rehabilitating a knee injury.

Stat that mattered:

The 22-year-old made reasonable gains across the stats board in his seven senior VFL games this season, more than doubling his average disposal count (13.3) from 2012 (6.8). He also took almost one and a half more marks per game (4.6) than last year (3.2).

What they said:

“Jack kicked two goals and presented all day. He also applied a lot of forward pressure when the ball hit the ground.”

- Development Manager Chris Maple after the VFL season opener

Redpath was showing steady improvements in the VFL playing for Williamstown this year, assuming the role of a key target in the forward line. His marking ability has improved as has his confidence. A broken wrist forced his season to end early.

Season By Season

Power forward from Kyneton who also spent time at the Bendigo Bombers. A 20-year-old who tested impressively in the 20m sprint. Has clean hands and is a thumping kick.
