Travis Varcoe 10 Fast Facts, Biography, Wiki
In August 2007, Varcoe caused controversy after concerns were raised about the racial and content featured on his MySpace page.
The Geelong Football Club acted swiftly, removing the content immediately after it came to its attention.
Varcoe’s sister Maggie died in August 2018 following an on-field collision whilst playing for Angle Vale Football Club in the Adelaide Footy League Grand Final.
Travis continued to play for Collingwood in the weeks after her death as a tribute to her.
The design of Collingwood 2019 Indigenous guernsey was inspired by Maggie and was designed by Travis’ sister in law.
Varcoe debuted in the South Australian National Football League (SANFL) for the Central District Football Club in 2005 at the age of 17.
A foot injury early in the season held him back from performing in front of prospective recruiters, before Geelong selected him at the end of the first round with the 15th overall pick in the 2005 National Draft.
Varcoe was given the honour of wearing Geelong’s number five guernsey, previously worn by club legends Gary Ablett and Polly Farmer.
Varcoe plays as a forward pocket but can also play as a midfielder if required, drawing comparisons to Melbourne speedster Aaron Davey, with his consistent forwardline pressure and high-speed chase downs on the field.
Varcoe is often referred to as “The Magician” with his quick, at times invisible handballs and tricky skills.
Varcoe played a key utility role for Geelong in 2009, which included a valuable contribution in the Grand Final as Geelong defeated the St Kilda Football Club.
Varcoe played a critical role in delivering a handball to Paul Chapman late in the game which resulted in a brilliant Chapman goal, giving Geelong a six-point lead.
Shortly after, team mate Max Rooke scored a goal after the final siren to give Geelong a 12-point win.
On 15 October 2014, Varcoe was traded to the Collingwood Football Club in a three-way trade between Collingwood, Geelong and Melbourne which also saw Mitch Clark and Heritier Lumumba find new clubs.
Despite being considered past his best during his last year at Geelong, Varcoe has enjoyed a renaissance of form since moving to Collingwood, playing arguably the best football of his career. Varcoe was considered one of the best recruits of the 2015 season.
After Collingwood was eliminated from the 2020 AFL finals series, Varcoe announced his retirement from football.
