Craig Malone – Leading NEAFL ruckman

After understanding the health and performance benefits of wearing equilibras™ e-flipsI put them to the trial. I wore them diligently and then went back to wearing my pluggers. I no longer wear pluggers as a result.

Craig is a rising talent in AFL with his sight set upon being drafted into the NAB AFL.  Because he stands at 198cm tall and 110 kg, he uses his big frame to advantage in one-on-one contests, paving the way for the midfielders to win first use of the ball. He led the NEAFL stats in hit-outs in 2016 by a healthy margin. His junior football was played with Alexandra Hills, before joining Mt Gravatt.

Craig has represented Queensland in AFL in the past and was again rewarded with representative honours by being named in the 2017 NEAFL Representative Squad. The big time is but a stone’s throw away.
