Roo Robbie Tarrant ‘underrated’ – Dal Santo

FORMER North Melbourne and St Kilda midfielder Nick Dal Santo says former South Mildura footballer Robbie Tarrant is one of the most underrated footballers in the AFL.

Dal Santo, now a media pundit, told SEN radio Tarrant’s versatility set him apart from other defenders.

“He is a superstar, a brilliant teammate, as reliable as the day is long and one hell of a good defender,” Dal Santo said.”It’s as simple as that. He’s strong, fast, competitive.

“He can take talls and smalls on and I love Robbie Tarrant for the player that he is now, because he started as a forward.”

Tarrant has played 21 or more games in each of the past five seasons after injury ruined much of his early career.
