German born Alex Ruscuklic was a forward and started his career with Fitzroy in 1966. He topped their goalkicking in 1970 with 49 goals. The following season he finished equal 5th in the Brownlow Medal count, the most by a Fitzroy player that year although he failed to win the club's best and fairest award. In 1971 he also finished first in the league for marks, with 216. His often spectacular aerial marking was the trademark of his game. At the start of the 1974 season Ruscuklic was suspended by the Fitzroy committee after a series of disagreements and he transferred to Carlton where he finished his VFL career. He is the elder brother of Peter Ruscuklic, another Fitzroy player.
