Russell Ebert Print Page
Ebert is widely regarded as Port Adelaide’s greatest ever player, and arguably the best to have played the game in South Australia, along with Robran. He came to Port Adelaide from the Riverland in 1968 where he played at full-forward and won the club’s leading goal kicker award in his first year.
Winning a record four Magarey Medals, he captained Port Adelaide to a drought-breaking 1977 premiership over Glenelg and later played in a total of four flags in the famous black-and-white guernsey. In later years he coached Port Adelaide and SA, and was elevated to the Australian, South Australian and Port Adelaide halls of fame.
