Who's that Rookie - Part 4
This week we profile one of the stars from the weekend, Josh (Macca/Joshy) McMillan who's apart of the Adelaide invasion to the Rebels this season!
So Macca, how did you hear about the Rebels?
At Clintons. Bumped into Scoota's Mrs who was plugging the Rebels because I had an Australian accent. I thought she was kidding until she actually got Scoota, Screech, Roche and Mex to rock up, talking me into attending the next Rebels training session to have a crack. Almost didn't show when they told me they played in the Collingwood colours!
What do you enjoy most about the sport?
The vibe and atmosphere of the team. Nothing better then playing on a team like the Rebels that have such a great bunch of lads, makes it worth while. And also makes you more willing to put your body on the line for your mates no questions asked.
When did you start playing footy and for what team?
I started playing a couple of years ago, 2009/10 i think it was. For the Pooraka Bulls in Adelaide, South Australia.
How do you think the rebels will do this season?
I think we are in for a great year! Im looking forward to finals footy already!
Which club do you support in the AFL and why?
I support the Adelaide Crows. They have been my team ever since they joined the AFL back in 1990. The true pride of South Australia, the Mighty Adelaide Crows.
Who is your favourite AFL Player?
Patrick Dangerfield and Scott Thompson.
What has been your favourite rebels moment so far?
I would say either winning my first game playing as a Rebel or definitely taking it to the Dingos on the weekend!
And lastly, footy clubs are full of characters, name a Rebel you think falls in this category and why?
Thats a tough one, there are so many at the club its hard to say. One that stands out at the moment would be Sheeds aka Josh Kennedy. Its always good to have someone in the team that has represented his country! Top bloke.
At the request of Macca i've put a pic of Josh Kennedy from the Socceroos below, make you comparison. Is he a dead ringer or what?!
