Footy Almanac luminary Old Dog (Matt Zurbo) is playing his 700th game of footy on Saturday 5 August.


Former local resident Peter Fuller came across this article in the Colac Herald, the local paper, which pays tribute to the Old Dog’s wonderful footy career.


The following is a link to the article in the Colac Herald, however it is behind a pay wall.
