The son of one of football’s biggest names, Russell Ebert, Brett Ebert is a talented footballer in his own right. He won the 2003 Magarey Medal with Port Adelaide’s SANFL side after being drafted to the AFL team as the club’s first ever father-son selection. A small forward with a strong body and ability to mark contested against taller opponents, he has been hampered by multiple injuries during his long AFL career.

Background

  • Ebert was Port Adelaide’s first father-son selection when he was brought to the Power with pick 42 in the 2002 National Draft.
  • He won the SANFL Magarey Medal in 2003 after a dominant year as a midfielder playing forward in the famous black and white prison bar guernsey.
  • He currently plays in the Power side with cousin Brad Ebert.

Season by Season

Season by Season

  • Brett came back from surgery in the pre-season and solid form in the SANFL to play out the remainder of the 2012 season beginning against Fremantle in Round 7.
  • He kicked 23 goals from 16 games playing primarily as a small forward but also spent time in the midfield later in the year.
  • An impressive display against Essendon in Round 16 drew two Brownlow Medal votes and cemented his place as Port’s first-choice small forward.
  • Ebert had a lighter pre-season having undergone LARS surgery on his knee and then later contracted tonsillitis and a virus to limit the amount of work he was able to do over summer.

  • He found his way back into the side halfway through the season and played 12 games – finding good form late in the year.
  • Part of that form development saw him play through the midfield in a positive end to an otherwise difficult year.
  • In a year where his regular forward partner Warren Tredrea was struck down by injury, Ebert led the Power’s goal kicking before rupturing his anterior cruciate ligament in Round 21 in what seemed like and innocuous knock.
  • Ebert followed the lead of teammate David Rodan in undergoing LARS surgery in August which would give him the quickest opportunity to return to the side in 2011.
