Profession Presenter, Rugby Player
Andrew Ettingshausen is an Australian former rugby league footballer of the 1980s, 1990s and early 2000s. He played his first grade Australian club football for the Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks, retiring at the end of the 2000 NRL season having played 328 first grade games for the club, the NSWRL/ARL/SL/NRL record for most games at a single club. Known for not only his deceptive pace, good hands, and ability to score tries, but also his solid defence, "ET" as he was known, represented both New South Wales and the Australian Kangaroos and was twice a Kangaroo tourist. After his retirement from league in 2000, Ettingshausen went on to host and produce his own fishing television show titled Escape with ET. Ettingshausen was originally signed to the Cronulla side as a teenager before making his debut at eighteen while still at school. He quickly cemented a place in the Sharks first grade side and ultimately played 328 first grade games with the club over eighteen seasons. From a time in the early 1990s he was seen as the face of rugby league in Australia. His rugged good looks equipped him well to be pushed to the front by the marketers of the game at that time and Ettingshausen did not disappoint with his athletic skills attracting the interest of traditional fans while his looks appealed to a growing base of female fans. ET was successfully used in marketing not only for the game but for sponsors products as well, usually in photo shoots of him posing topless leading him to be seen as the 'Male Model of Rugby League'. Despite league being seen by not only the players but the public as a rough and tumble sport, it was a tag he never had to play down as his outstanding play and standing in the game made people look past what was not normally known for rugby league players.
