An all-time great of North Melbourne, Todd Goldstein’s ability to continue his dominance as one of the AFL’s premier rucks well into his 30’s is sublime.

After crossing to football from basketball in his teenage years, Goldstein learned his craft at VFL level, failing to play a senior game in his first year at the club.

Making 13 appearances across the next two seasons, he established himself as a consistent member of North’s best 22 in 2010, forming a strong partnership with fellow ruck Hamish McIntosh.

After finishing second in the Syd Barker Medal two years in a row, Goldstein finally earned the club’s highest honour in 2015, pairing the award with his first selection in the All-Australian team after a career best year.

Goldstein’s longevity has been a consistent and crucial part of the Kangaroos’ teams of the last decade, with the number 22 playing less than 20 games in a season only twice since 2010, including the Covid shortened season of 2020.

North Melbourne debut: Round 15, 2008
Career Brownlow votes: 71

2021: With the return of Ben Cunnington, Goldstein was no longer the only veteran player in North’s midfield.

While the pair rekindled their brilliant partnership in the middle of the ground, Goldstein spent more time forward than ever before in his career, providing a strong marking target in the forward 50 while Tom Campbell or Tristan Xerri took over ruck duties.

The extra time forward didn’t impact his ruck craft though, as he still registered games over 40 hitouts three times across the season, including a 53 hitout effort against Brisbane in Round 14.

‘Goldy’ cemented his status as one of the greatest rucks in the history of the game in the Round 17 victory over West Coast, overtaking Aaron Sandilands for the most hitouts in VFL/AFL history.
