Player Bio

At A Glance

Junior Clubs: Colac
Debut: 2014
Recruited from: North Ballarat VFL
Brownlow Votes: -

Another fringe player who found senior games tough to come by early in the season and, when he did play, often was in the sub’s vest. A versatile player with good leg speed, Towers had a breakout game in round 23 against Gold Coast, racking up 20 possessions and kicking two goals playing as a mobile half-forward. He followed that up by being one of the Swans’ best in both their losing finals and should be aiming to become a permanent member of the club’s best 22.

Draft history: 2012 NAB AFL Draft 1st round selection (Sydney) No. 22 overall.
