Player Bio

At A Glance

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

Last year was another season of development for the talented utility, who again showed all the attributes of a regular senior player. Had over 20 possessions and kicked two goals on three separate occasions to give the AFL world a taste of what he’s capable of. Consistency will be the key focus for the 26-year-old in 2017.

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