    National Recruiting Manager Announced

    The Western Bulldogs have appointed experienced recruiter Nick Austin as their new National Recruiting Manager.

    Austin arrives at VU Whitten Oval with over a decade of experience in the AFL industry in recruiting, list management, opposition analysis and player welfare, and returns to the Club after a three-year stint between 2006-08.

    Bulldogs’ General Manager of List and Recruiting Sam Power said he was thrilled to welcome Austin back to the Club.

    “After an extensive search, we’re extremely pleased to have Nick commit to the Bulldogs, and we’re excited to have him join our team,” he said.

    “Nick has vast experience and expertise in recruiting, he has proven himself as a strong leader with a keen eye for talent identification, and we believe he will be a great addition to our list and recruiting department.

    “With our recently changed and expanded structure now finalised, we look forward to continuing to strengthen the Club’s playing list in 2018 and beyond.”

    Austin arrived at the Bulldogs in 2006 and worked for three years as an opposition analyst with a role also in player welfare, before heading to Port Adelaide as the Power’s Recruiting Officer in late 2008.

    Most recently, he enjoyed a six-year spell with Richmond Football Club as its List Management and Recruiting Officer.

    Thanks Mantis.


    I like the Ricmond connection. That means Austin would have been working with Francis Jackson who does excellent work.

    After speaking to Obie for about fourty-five minutes on the telephone we
    Finally arrived at the truth of the matter and said that we had to go down
    And pick up the garbage, and also had to go down and speak to him at the
    Police officer's station. So we got in the red vw microbus with the
    Shovels and rakes and implements of destruction and headed on toward the
    Police officer's station.

    Now friends, there was only one or two things that Obie coulda done at
    The police station, and the first was he could have given us a medal for
    Being so brave and honest on the telephone, which wasn't very likely, and
    We didn't expect it, and the other thing was he could have bawled us out
    And told us never to be seen driving garbage around the vicinity again,
    Which is what we expected, but when we got to the police officer's station
    There was a third possibility that we hadn't even counted upon, and we was
    Both immediately arrested. Handcuffed. And I said "Obie, I don't think I
    Can pick up the garbage with these handcuffs on. " He said, "Shut up, kid.
    Get in the back of the patrol car. "

    Nick is the son of Rod (Curley)Austin, who also served at our Club, as an Assistant Coach to Michael Malthouse. Nick Austin also played District cricket with Carlton. Comes with good credentials and is an excellent choice.

    So he's been around a while then. Malthouse left nearly 30 years ago.

    I think NBP is refering to Nicks Dad Rod. Not Nick.
    They come after one,
    They come after all,
    They can't handle all,
    Lets go....
