Career highlights

Brent Renouf (born 3 May 1988 in New Zealand) is a professional Australian rules footballer who played for Hawthorn and Port Adelaide in the Australian Football League (AFL).

His eighth AFL match was the 2008 AFL Grand Final.[1]

Early life[edit]

Brent was born in New Zealand and moved to the Gold Coast, Queensland in Australia at an early age where he began playing Australian Rules Football.[2][3]

AFL career[edit]

Renouf was drafted with selection 24 in the 2006 AFL Draft from the Southport Sharks and made his AFL début in round 12 of 2008.[4] In his third game of senior football he was reported for striking Adam Selwood from the West Coast Eagles and suspended for two matches.[5]

His eighth AFL match was the 2008 AFL Grand Final[1] and as part of the winning team (Hawthorn Hawks), he received a Premiership Medallion, the league's highest accolade.

In December 2008, Renouf was arrested following a drunken incident on Burwood Road, Hawthorn, in which he climbed over two parked cars, breaking the windscreen of one. Police indicated he would be charged with criminal damage, the Hawthorn Football Club fined him $5,000 and suspended him for two matches.[6]

Renouf required a skin graft after falling into a fire at Surfers Paradise in December 2009.

Due to injuries to Max Bailey, Simon Taylor and Wayde Skipper, Renouf took the job as number one ruckman for the 2010 season.

In 2011 he had his gall bladder removed after suffering an injury playing against Geelong in round 7.[7]

He was traded to Port Adelaide for pick 33 in the 2011 AFL Draft. At the end of 2013 he was delisted by Port but was re-drafted by the Power in the rookie draft.[8] As of 2014 with both the Power and the Adelaide Crows each having a reserves team in the local South Australian National Football League (SANFL) competition, Renouf plays for the Port Adelaide Magpies when not playing for the AFL's Power or is out injured. He was delisted by the Power at the end of the 2014 season.[9]
