Anthony McDonald-Tipungwuti Biography

Friday, 30 August 2019
Anthony McDonald-Tipungwuti signs a three-year contract with Essendon to remain at the club until the end of 2022.

"I am really enjoying playing football for this club and I can't wait to continue my journey with the Bombers," McDonald-Tipungwuti said.

"I just want to continue to work hard and play my role to help this group achieve the success that we're all after over the next few years."

Anthony McDonald-Tipungwuti says he can't wait to run out alongside his former Gippsland Power teammate Dyson Heppell in the Bombers' season opener next year.

"I talked to him (Heppell) when he came back and said, 'Imagine what it will be like,'" McDonald-Tipungwuti said.

"It will be like back in the old days."

Thursday, 25 August 2016
Anthony McDonald-Tipungwuti has gone from speculative draft pick to being in Essendon's best 22 inside a year.

He approached Worsfold at the end of last year to discuss his hopes of getting onto the list when the new coach was into his first month at the club. He's glad he took the plunge and put his case forward.

"It was during my lunch break and I thought I needed to go and talk to John and see what he said about me training with the boys. I ended up going in and was a bit nervous and went up to him and asked him if I could come up and train and have a go at AFL level," he said.

"We had a chat from then and worked it out and I've really enjoyed playing under him.

"I really enjoyed working [at the club] and learning different cultures, but AFL was my passion and I had to go for it."

He was overlooked at several drafts, and had begun to think an AFL career might have passed him by. Essendon has been a club that has produced strong indigenous voices over the past three decades, and McDonald-Tipungwuti is keen to use his building profile for good.

"It's something I want to do, and encourage indigenous kids to achieve their goals, even if it's footy or just anything in life. I want to be that leader for everyone [so they know] they can achieve their goals if they put their mind to it," McDonald-Tipungwuti said.

"It wasn't easy. It was pretty hard. But I had the support with my families and a few friends. I knew where I had to get and [it was the] AFL. I had to put my mind into it and I finally achieved it, and I've still got a few more years to come."

Friday, 19 August 2016
Essendon signs Anthony McDonald-Tipungwuti to a new three-year deal after his breakout 2016 season.

The Bombers rookie was elevated to the senior list earlier this year and has impressed with his pace and hardness across half-back.

Essendon drafted McDonald-Tipungwuti last year after he played for its VFL side, and the 23-year-old will now be tied to the Bombers until at least the end of 2019.

"Essendon gave me the chance to play AFL, and I'm really happy to keep playing my footy for the Bombers," McDonald-Tipungwuti said in a club statement.

"I have learnt a lot this year since getting my chance to play senior footy, I know I have to keep working hard on my game but I'm really enjoying playing my football under 'Woosha' [coach John Worsfold]."
