But in the coaches’ box he’s become even more respected.
Head coach of the St Kilda men’s side, Ratten arrived at the club in 2018 as an assistant coach before becoming the caretaker coach at the back end of the 2019 season.
Notching up three wins from a revamped St Kilda side to close out the year, his appointment as senior coach was announced at season’s end.
The following year, he led the club to its first finals appearance in nine years
Having spent time under Alastair Clarkson and Neale Daniher, Ratten’s knowledge of the game is among the best in the business.
