A decade after his first stint at an AFL club, Geelong forward James
Podsiadly will this weekend play at the highest level for the first time at
the ripe old age of 28.
Podsiadly will become one
of the AFL's oldest debutants of recent times when he takes his place at
full-forward against Fremantle at Subiaco Oval on Sunday.
Podsiadly was last year
recruited from the VFL by the Cats under the AFL's new mature-age rookie
rule, having spent time at Essendon in 2000 and Collingwood in 2002.
He was unable to crack
senior games with either club, but Cameron Mooney's suspension means
Podsiadly will finally get his chance after getting the nod from coach Mark
grabbed me in the race and told me that I was playing - it was something
that I never thought would happen," Podsiadly told Geelong's website.
