Joel Tippett Working on his upper body strength in THE PIT with USP head Coach Joey Hayes

After being recruited to the Brisbane Lions as a rookie in 2007 and suffering a series of stress fractures in his back he was delisted in 2009 after not playing a single game, he was then thrown a life line by the GC Suns and selected as a rookie in 2011 where he played 2 games for the suns before being delisted once again.

Still not content to give up on his dreams, in 2013, he was offered the opportunity to play in the SANFL with West Adelaide of which he played 21 games and was selected in the SA team of the year, unfortunately succumbing to a fractured back prior to the draft camp testing in October 2013!
