Robert Eddy (born 7 January 1988) is an Australian rules footballer, currently playing for Woodville-West Torrens Football Club in the South Australian National Football League. He previously played for St Kilda in the Australian Football League (AFL).
He was an elite ball winner at junior level, averaging 27 disposals per game for Gippsland during the 2006 TAC Cup season.
St Kilda Football Club
Eddy was elevated off the rookie list to play 13 games in 2008. He made his debut in Round 13 and kept his spot in the side for the rest of the season, including 3 finals appearances. He won 12 disposals per game for St Kilda in 2008, but it was his defensive pressure that impressed as he laid the third most tackles of any player during his time in the side.
The midfielder/forward is noted for his endurance, willingness to go hard at the ball and ability to apply forward pressure.
2009: Minor premiership
Eddy played in St Kilda's two finals victories in 2009 but was dropped for the grand final for Sean Dempster.
2010: Grand finalist, delisting and redrafting
Eddy played in the 2010 AFL Grand Final in which St Kilda drew with Collingwood and the 2010 AFL Grand Final Replay in which St Kilda were defeated by 56 points. He was delisted by the club at the end of the 2010 premiership season and then redrafted onto the club's rookie list in the 2011 Rookie Draft.
Eddy joined Woodville-West Torrens in late 2011, signing a two-year contract.
