Of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander heritage, Robert Ahmat was a copiously skilled footballer only let down by a slight lack of consistency. A Darwin Football Club product, he played representative football for the Northern Territory at secondary school, Teal Cup and senior level. After playing 25 games and kicking 22 goals for from 1995 to 1997 for Collingwood he seemed to be starting to find his feet, and it was something of a surprise when he was traded to Sydney. Between 1998 and 2001 he made 42 senior appearances and scored 46 goals for the Swans, but only produced his best football sporadically. Ahmat went on to have stints at Norwood (14 games, 14 goals, 1993-4), St George, Southern Districts and Dunolly.
