Another Round, another milestone game, as Rob Di Roberto will put on the long sleeves for the 100th time this weekend against AJAX.
Rob began his career in Under 19s, and has slowly worked up the ranks to become a crafty forward in the Reserves. He proved to be a valuable player in the 2017 finals series, where he kicked 4 goals in the Preliminary Final.
For his efforts in the Reserves, and one appearance in the Thirds, Rob was rewarded with a Senior appearance on 10 occasions throughout his career.
100 games for Robby and what a 100 it’s been.
From splashing on the scene in 2014 as a baby eagle to still to date being one of the best left foots on goal the club has. Robs start in Under 19’s was huge being one of the leading goal kickers in the comp as a small forward.
To this day he still carries those great attributes that leads him towards big bags in some of the biggest games. As a clubman Rob defines all of what being a Marcellin legend is all about. From coaches, to players and even some opposition, Rob makes his mark on everyone in such a positive way that makes him so easy to get along even if he cracks a lame gag more often then not but we love him for it.
Good luck in your big game mate. It’s been a pleasure to play with you most of my senior career. I can’t wait for the next 100 games and hopefully that bloody premiership we want so bad. Also congrats to Piero on being in the forward pocket 100 times as well.

Good luck to Rob on his 100th this weekend, we wish him all the best.
