DEPENDABLE, loyal, versatile, whole hearted, popular- Ryan Costin answers to all the above.
Ryan, who plays his 100th senior game v Bulleen Templestowe on August 3, is a lesson to all in perserverance and application.
In the last three seasons he has become an integral part of the senior team, able to adapt to a defensive or attacking role in any number of positions.
A member of the past two grand final teams, Ryan is one of the most popular and respected players at the club and a worthy addition to the names of 100 senior game players on the lockers at Toorak Park.
Fittingly Costin was as dependable as ever and a leading contributor in a thrilling five point win.
