Jimboomba Redbacks player Bryce Tomlinson celebrated his 200th AFL game with a 32-28 win against Morningside Panthers at home on 14 April.

Tomlinson, 34, started playing AFL with the Redbacks at the age of 18 after playing basketball for most of his youth.

He played three seasons for the Redbacks before moving to the NEAFL.

A knee injury forced a year off from the game in 2013 after which he came back to play for Broadbeach, Palm Beach and Park Ridge

He returned to Jimboomba Redbacks four years ago.

“All the while I was living in Beaudesert, and travelling three times a week,” he said.

“I love it.  It is a good release from work and the Jimboomba Club has always been home.”
