On Sunday Thirroul Butchers local junior Joel Ruskin will play his 150th first grade game for the club. This is a great milestone for Joel and a feat that has only be achieved by a handful of players in the clubs long, proud history.
He started grade career as an outside back and has represented Illawarra and Country NSW many times. He always did the tough carries no one else wanted to do. Joel now plays in the middle but this commitment to the team and work ethic remain. He optimises the Butchers spirit.
