Player Bio

At a Glance

Junior Club: Murray Bushrangers
Debut: 2018
Clubs: Geelong
Recruited from: Murray Bushrangers

After debuting in round one of 2018, Ratugolea was poised for a big year before his season was cut short due to a broken ankle against Carlton in round 10. The strong forward was a vital addition to the forward line and his absence for the remainder of the year was evident. Blessed with great athleticism, he has the power, leaping skills and ability to play forward as well as in the ruck.
