Found Dead at Laverton Train Station. Rowan “Rooster” Andrews was a Father of Two, a Police Officer, and an AFL Player.

In a shocking turn of events, the community is mourning the sudden death of Rowan ‘Rooster’ Andrews, a beloved figure known for his dual roles as a police officer and a former professional Aussie Rules player. The 38-year-old father-of-two was discovered lifeless at Laverton Railway Station, shortly before 5 am last Friday.

Andrews, affectionately nicknamed “Rooster,” had transitioned to a career in law enforcement a decade ago after showcasing promise as an AFL player. His sudden demise has left family, friends, and sports clubs in grief, remembering him as a “rock” who brought people together.

Chris Rourke, Andrews’ former coach, expressed high regard for the late athlete, stating, “If I had sons and one of them came out like him I would have thought I’d won tattslotto.”

Having embarked on a footballing journey that spanned across Australia, Andrews was drafted from Tasmania to the Adelaide Crows in 2003. Although he spent two years on the rookie list, he didn’t secure a senior call-up. Subsequently, he returned to Tasmania, playing for Kingborough in the Tasmanian State League and VFL footy for his home state.

The talented ruckman then moved to Canberra, where he played in the NEAFL, emerging as one of the most dominant players in the competition. In recent times, Andrews had been contributing to local footy clubs in country Victoria and suburban Melbourne.

Recalling their time together at Ainslie in 2009, Rourke reminisced about Andrews’ “uncompromising” training habits, noting that he played a pivotal role in back-to-back premierships in 2010 and 2011. Condolences flooded social media platforms, with the Williamstown Superules Football Club expressing deep sorrow and The Ainslie Football Club describing Andrews as a fearless leader who set the tone for many games.

The community now faces the challenge of coming to terms with the loss of this man described as a “gentle giant” who left an indelible mark both on the football field and in law enforcement.
