15-year old German exchange student Tomas von Rudno Restrero made local footy headlines in Melbourne's northern suburbs recently, being profiled on the website of the Northern Football League after completing a season with the Mill Park Stallions under 16s side.
Tomas had never seen Australian rules football before arriving in Melbourne earlier this year, but jumped onboard with Mill Park to give the sport a go and ended up playing the full season.
WFN hopes that his enthusiasm can connect to a local club back in Germany when he returns home - from the interview it seems he doesn't yet know of the existence of the Hamburg Dockers, located close by his home town of Stade (but maybe we can fill him in).
The full interview is available on the NFL website.
