Career highlights

Alipate Carlile (born 30 April 1987 in Fiji) is an Australian Rules Footballer who plays for Port Adelaide Power.

He, along with David Rodan, his cousin, is one of two known current Fijian-born players in the Australian Football League with the Port Adelaide Football Club. Due to his difficult to pronounce name, he is affectionately known as "Bob" amongst Power supporters.

Carlile played basketball and soccer as a junior before beginning his Australian Rules career semi-professionally with the Wangaratta Rovers. The big bodied 192 cm and 98 kg Carlile was selected by Port Adelaide at pick 44 in the 2005 AFL Draft from the Murray Bushrangers.

He made his Australian Football League debut in Round 16, 2006 in the match against St Kilda Football Club at Aurora Stadium. Since debuting, he has made several appearances in defence with the affiliated South Adelaide Football Club in the SANFL.

In 2007, he played his first game for the year in round 14, playing 7 consecutive games in a relatively successful Port Adelaide team. He then played in the round 22 match, and the first week of the finals, but was dropped for the preliminary final in favour of experienced campaigner Darryl Wakelin.

Season 2008 was Carlile's break out season, playing all 22 games in the season, a first for Carlile. He quickly become a stalwart in defense for his tight checking role and ability to run forward of the play. He averaged 13 disposals, 5 marks and 2 tackles. He was recognised with the Gavin Wanganeen Medal.
