Ty Zantuck (born 15 February 1982) is an Australian rules footballer.

He is the son of AFL footballer Shane Zantuck and the nephew of AFL brothers Arnold Briedis and Robert Briedis.

The 188 cm Zantuck is a strong unit, weighing in at 93 kg. He began his career at the Richmond Football Club as a tough, solid defender after being drafted in 2000. His off-field shenanigans and drinking incidents saw the talented player experience a fall out with the club, and he was de-listed and picked up by Essendon, where coach Kevin Sheedy (who has transformed the likes of John Barnes into model players on and off the field) gave him a second chance.

In the 2005 Anzac Day clash against Collingwood, Zantuck was involved in a pre-match altercation where his guernsey was ripped by an opponent.

Zantuck was delisted at the end of 2005 due to his inconsistency and his demeanour around the club.

Zantuck played for Kangaroo Flat in 2007, then had a short stint at Heidelberg Football Club in Victoria's Northern Football League where he played in their 2008 premiership side. [1] After an injury plagued 2009 season Zantuck parted ways with the Tigers and moved to former junior club Strathmore for the 2010 season.

Zantuck currently plays football for Strathmore in the Essendon District Football League.
