Jack Redpath Biography

Monday, 17 September 2018
Jack Redpath announces his retirement due to a degenerative knee injury.

His final game came in round four of 2018, before issues with his knee sidelined him for the rest of the year.

"It's been well and truly the hardest decision I've ever made in my life," Redpath said.

"It's probably been coming for a little bit. My knee has never really got back to where it should be to play AFL footy.

"I want to thank the club massively for how they've been through this period. I was told on countless occasions to take my time and make sure it's the right decision.

"By the time I spoke to family and close friends, the coaches and the staff who I'm extremely close with, I'm one hundred per cent sure it's the right decision for me."

Saturday, 25 August 2018
Jack Redpath is expected announce his retirement next week, despite being contracted for 2019, after suffering a wretched run with serious injury.

Following the Bulldogs' three-point loss to Richmond, coach Luke Beveridge hit out at reports Redpath had fallen out of love with the club and that had contributed to the decision.

"Jack (Redpath) is one of the most unfortunate players in the competition because he's had serious knee injuries and that will probably finish his career," Beveridge said post-game.

"(Journalist) Tom (Browne) is reporting something that's fiction around Jack not being happy at the football club.

"We love him, he loves the club and for Tom Browne to report that is obviously pretty disappointing, because there isn't an ounce of truth in it."

Monday, 30 April 2018
Jack Redpath will miss three months after having more surgery on his knee.

"Jack has suffered some soreness in his knee over the last two weeks," Bulldogs medical manager Chris Bell said.

"Unfortunately it hasn't settled and we had to proceed to surgery. The surgery involved a repair to his lateral meniscus which is a shock-absorbing pad in his knee."

Tuesday, 28 November 2017
Despite just playing 34 games in five seasons at Whitten Oval, Jack Redpath is a highly respected figure, and the admiration from his peers has seen the 26-year-old unanimously voted into the Bulldogs' leadership group for the first time.

"I had a chat with the club at the end of last year on whether I'd be willing to do it if the boys threw up my name, and my name kept coming up, which was good," Redpath said.

"I don't think I've ever tried to be part of the leadership group, I've just had good relationships within the group, I like to think I work hard and look after myself."

Monday, 20 November 2017
Easton Wood is named captain of the Western Bulldogs for the 2018 season, with Marcus Bontempelli serving as vice-captain.

"To become the custodian of the group is something really special to me," Wood said.

"I've been here my whole adult life. I've grown up here. It's definitely special."

Jason Johannisen, Lachie Hunter, Jack Redpath and Jordan Roughead round out the six-man leadership group.

Sunday, 3 September 2017
Jack Redpath rebuffs significant interest from rival clubs to sign a two-year contract extension with the club.

It's the first multi-year deal the 26-year-old has signed at Whitten Oval after previously inking six-straight one-year deals since being recruited with pick 62 in the 2011 NAB AFL Rookie Draft.

“We’ve regularly seen glimpses of what Jack can do on the footy field and we’re confident his best is still ahead of him,” Bulldogs list manager Jason McCartney said.

“If he can get some continuity into his game and continues to work hard I have no doubt he can be a real presence for us up forward.”

Wednesday, 23 August 2017
Phil Davis defends himself against allegations that he is a stager.

Premiership players David King and Cameron Ling were among the pundits to question whether Davis went down too easily during a recent clash with Western Bulldogs forward Jack Redpath.

Redpath received a three-game ban last week after unsuccessfully challenging his striking charge.

Davis, who plays his 100th game for the Giants this weekend, was unimpressed with much of the commentary about the incident.

"I was a little bit bemused by it all," the key defender said.

"It's always interesting when people make comments without all the facts ... some of the people that were leading chorus in that didn't try to make contact or learn the facts.

"That's always a little bit disappointing."

Tuesday, 15 August 2017
Jack Redpath is suspended for three matches after failing to contest a striking charge against Giant Phil Davis.
Saturday, 6 May 2017
Jack Redpath boots six goals in his return from a knee reconstruction in Footscray's seven-point win against Richmond in the VFL at Etihad Stadium.

"It's been nine-and-a-half months, or just over that. It is reasonably quick but I worked my butt off this year," Redpath said.

"From the moment I did it, I was back running in 18 weeks. I feel like I've done everything right."

Tuesday, 26 July 2016
A visibly emotional Luke Beveridge has spoken of the grief the club endured in the wake of season-ending injuries to Mitch Wallis and Jack Redpath.

On the verge of tears at his weekly press conference, the second-year coach spoke of the love he has for his injured charges and the Western Bulldogs' playing group as a whole.

"I'm an emotional person with our (playing) group and the way they care about each other," Beveridge said.

"It's my prerogative and responsibility to be strong, which I'm not being now, but I haven't been this (emotional) with the group.

"They've been quite resilient when they've been around each other and they're all in really good spirits.

'We've picked ourselves up, we're going to train this afternoon and pump a bit of energy into that session and that will help us move on."

Saturday, 23 July 2016
Jack Redpath will require a knee reconstruction after tearing his anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) against St Kilda.

It came on a night when the Bulldogs also lost key forward Mitch Wallis for the season due to a broken leg.

"In all football clubs the players are tight. Ours is no different. They're really hurting," Western Bulldogs coach Luke Beveridge said.

"They're really feeling it for Mitch and his family and also for 'Red' and his family."

Tuesday, 21 June 2016
Jack Redpath has been rewarded for his strong form in 2016 with a new one-year contract with the Bulldogs.

The deal is the sixth 12-month contract in succession the 25-year-old has inked at Whitten Oval, and it comes off the back of 15 goals in six games this season.

"I was given an opportunity by this club to play AFL footy, and after a few injuries, and now to be playing some good footy in the firsts, it’s a good time to be around," Redpath said.

"I feel like they gave me the opportunity and I feel like playing a bit of good footy is a little bit of a repayment for the support they’ve given me through this little journey of mine."

Wednesday, 1 June 2016
The prospect of signing a fifth one-year deal in succession sits comfortably with Western Bulldogs key forward Jack Redpath.

The 25-year-old has lived on 'footy's edge' since he arrived at Whitten Oval via the 2012 NAB AFL Rookie Draft, and he's of the belief the pressure of yearly contracts is beneficial for his career.

"It might be a good thing because as long as I keep doing what I'm doing at the moment, I don't think there's going to be a problem there," Redpath said.

"I don't think I have to worry about that (contract) stuff because I'm pretty happy with how I'm going at the moment, personally.

"There's going to be some special years to come (with the Bulldogs), so hopefully I can hang around because I'd love to be a part of that."

Wednesday, 29 July 2015
Jack Redpath signs a one-year contract extension with the Western Bulldogs.

The 24-year-old former rookie has played seven games since his debut in round 16 last season.

"There's still a lot of work to be done on my game and as a team, but just to know that the club wants me around for another year, I was absolutely rapt," Redpath said.

"I'm just absolutely stoked to be in the team, I couldn't be happier."

Thursday, 3 July 2014
Jack Redpath will make his debut for the Western Bulldogs this week at Geelong.

"It's fantastic for Jack, he was tracking really well as a young player, and has overcome a couple of knee reconstructions," Bulldogs coach Brendan McCartney said.

"We've had him here for two or three years, and he's been able to really develop in our VFL team under some great coaching.

"We're hoping he'll bring some intensity and some contested marking."
