Brad Fittler

Football Career

Fittler's first grade career started in 1989 at the Penrith Panthers while he was still in high school. He played in Penrith's 1990 Grand Final loss, then in the Premiership winning side of 1991. In 1996, he joined the Sydney Roosters where he played nine seasons, captaining them to the 2002 Grand Final victory. Fittler is the third most experienced first grader, behind Terry Lamb and Steve Menzies, having played 336 games.

 

 

Fittler represented the Australian Schoolboys from McCarthy Catholic College in 1988 and 1989. He was selected for Kangaroo Tours in 1990, 1994 and 2001 and played in the World Cups of 1992, 1995 and 2000.

Early in his career Fittler struggled with discipline problems, but he matured into a fine leader. He captained Australia in 20 Tests, winning 17 and losing 3, and in a further 5 victories in the 2000 World Cup. He also captained NSW in 14 State of Origin matches, winning 8 and losing 6. In club competition, he captained the Roosters to their first grand final appearance in twenty seasons in 2000, a Premiership in 2002 and successive grand final appearances in 2003 and 2004, before retiring at the end of 2004.

Two years after Fittler announced his retirement from representative football, NSW coach Phil Gould brought him back to State of Origin for the second and third game. Both he and Gould were farewelled in the last game at Telstra Stadium after he scored the winning try that sealed the NSW victory.

Fittler remains the youngest NSW State of Origin player (18 years 114 days) and was once the youngest Kangaroo representative (18 years 247 days) until Israel Folau made his debut in late 2007. Fittler played more total matches (409 combining club and representative games) than any other player.

 Legacy

Brad Fittler was known to be an extremely influential five-eighth. His ability to work under pressure and get his team back on the board was second to none. Throughout his career he often displayed tremendous speed by putting a left foot step, breaking the line and running 70 metres to score. He was also known to throw devestating cut-out passes and towering bombs.

Brad Fittler is also known to be the heart of the Sydney Roosters Outfit. With his influence the Roosters were the most dominant team, finishing in the top 8 every year he was present and often topping the ladder for most of the year. With Brad Fittler absent, the Roosters failed to reach the top 8 for 3 years. With him back in the team as coach they are again on the top half of the ladder and looking finals bound.
